Battlefield 3 FPS Drop

Hey guys. I know this has been addressed numerous times before. I kept searching for the solution for hours and hours but I wasn't able to find anything. So, here's my problem. In multiplayer, my FPS drops from 60 to 30, back to 45 and then back to 60. Here's my rig:

Intel Core i3 530 @ 2.93 Ghz
Sapphire HD 7770 Ghz Edition 1GB DDR5
4GB DDR3 RAM (Windows only use 3)
Win7 Home Premium 32-bit

I have been tweaking the GPU's settings but I haven't noticed a huge difference in performance. Any solutions?

My PC will be probably upgraded in a few months. Here's what I have in mind:

AMD FX-8350 4.0 Ghz 8-core
Corsair 8GB DDR3 RAM
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

What do you think?

  2. I totally agree with you. I'll definitely upgrade my CPU. What about HD 7770? Isn't that a good GPU?
