Hi , so i have played Battlefield 3 for a year now and about half year ago it started lagging like hell for me ( fps lag not internet ) , the thing is that it didnt lag in the Beta or Alpha .
When i play on medium my avarage fps is 40 what is fine but it drops like hell what causes lag .
The drops go from 40 to 20 and back.
It lags on every setting low , medium and high i play without AA and SSAO and my resolution is quite small - 1280x1024.
I use Nvidia 310.70 beta drivers.
So any help is appreciated
(Sorry for bad English)
For starters do a clean installation of the latest Nvidia drivers.
Then have a look at background applications, do you have a load of stuff running at the same time?
Then check your temperatures while ingame, if it's getting very high it could be throttling.
your gpu is kinda old, try an AMD 7850/70 or if your budgets goes 7950/70
Seriously? I was playing BF3 on a 460 on medium settings 1080p without any problems, so that's complete rubbish.
Definitely plenty of system to run Battlefield 3. The question just really is, is your hardware causing the issue or the software ? Download GPU-z and Core Temp and post your temperatures while playing. Or just open up your case and blow out all the dust in the CPU & GPU fans and make sure both are still spinning. If your temperatures check out fine, start with the above mentioned driver reinstallation. If that doesn't work you probably should reinstall windows from scratch.
