Help with BF3

my specs
asus m4a785-m
phenom II x4 925 2.8ghz
6gig kingston ddr2 800
500gb wd sata2 hdd
msi 6970 2gig afterburner video card
windows 7 ultimate

All drivers are fully up to date along with windows. When i play bf3 @ 1680x1050 i cannot hold 60fps even on all low settings. i run from 28 to 60 with avg being about 40fps. This does not seem right for my rig. I cannot figure out why i cant keep 60 fps with my system. any help is appreciated.

  1. you should overclock, not sure about your question but do your research and overclock
  2. should this settup give me a constant 60 fps in bf3? or do i need a different processor?
  3. A 6970 should give you around 40fps average with all settings max (Ultra+4xMSAA) so if youre getting 40fps average on all low, then you are indeed underperforming.

    Your processor is a bit on the poor side and your RAM is a little outdated now (DDR3 is the new standard), so maybe a Mobo+CPU+RAM upgrade bundle is required.
