Question:

I just recently got into computer gaming and this is my first build, I built this computer to play BF3 online. When running the game on Ultra I experience FPS around 90. While at 90 FPS my game will freeze and shutter (while maintaining a constant 90 FPS). While playing on a console I would attribute this to Lag, but I am worried that there is an issue with my computer. Could someone give some tips on how to deal with this? Is my computer not powerful enough to handle BF3 muliplayer?

I had the same problem with my 680 fps in the 80s it either 1. Your oc, if you over clocked, is not stable and bf3 crashes which it did with my oc that's how I knew it wosnt stable 2. Turn vsync on and you'll hold 60fps easy. You have 2 660s which is little more powerful than my 680 and I completely max that game out so you have no problem.

Thanks for the reply I'll give this a try when I get home. Hopefully it will solve the issue. I was more fearful that I had built an under performing machine.

Sounds like your CPU may be overheated, install CPUID and check temps.

What is a good temperature for a CPU like mine to run at? Average temp from watching it last night was around 85 degrees.
