Lag and low FPS in Bf3

Hello everyone!

I seek advice on how i could increase my FPS in BF3!

I have been playing Bf3 for some while now and i've been playing with 30-40 FPS in general... but now i cant take it anymore, and it is making my gaming experience a bit sloppy :/

here is my PC specs:
- Processor Intel® Core i5-2500K Processor Socket-LGA1155, Quad Core, 3.3Ghz, 6MB, ( Ny processor)
- Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V LX, Socket-1155 ATX, Z68, DDR3, 2xPCIe(2.0)x16, SATA 6Gb/s, USB3.0
- Ram: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL9 Kit w/2x 4GB
- Harddrive: Western Digital Caviar® Blue 500GB SATA 6Gb/s
- Graficcard: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 570 1280MB

I play with everything on Ultra, Motion blur off.

Could it be because of my harddrive is half full?
or is it simply because i need more RAM, better CPU or better Graphics? ( which i couldnt think would be the reason)

Looking forward for some advice or any kind of help!

Kind regards,

  1. Its because if you demand a minimum of 60FPS that card cannot run it on ultra, whack it all down a bit (you wont notice much visual difference anyway).
  2. All right, ill give it a go!
    An increase of 8 gb ram wouldnt give it a boost?
  3. RAM increase would do nothing if you want 60FPS constant with ultra settings you need a GTX680 (possibly 2 if you really want over 60FPS all the time). Honestly high settings you will see nearly no difference in quality but get alot more FPS with your current GTX570
  4. Thanks lad :)!
    High settings should be fine .. bf3 graphics are in overall just awsome!
