I just got a GTX 670 FTW and I have been trying it out on some of my games. It works fine with GTA IV at avg 52 fps and Cod 4 at 90ish FPS. But when I get to BF3 my main game it seems sluggish. My FPS is jumpy raning from the 90's to the high 40's. I have tried multiple video settings but still doesn't preform amazing. It seems like its almost stuttering. Is it the Card? Is my CPU bootlenecking it? Or is it something else?

I think that it is just the card... if it really ever gets low(below 30 then your card is maby having issues but 40-90 is pretty good for one of the most demandings games on the market right now.. but yeah the fluctuation is wierd but i think its just the card catching up.

have you tried it with metro 2033 if you can(on steam right now 7/17/12 for $5) good fps on that then your set

Don't worry about the fps as long as it does not drop below 30 your fine also try turing of the v-sync in the options(if you see ripples in the screen then that is the v-sync off) I think the 670 has a v-sync built in so disable that and tell me the fps.

Oh and i don't think it is your cpu bottlenecking(do upgrade at some point in the future games are getting more and more cpu intensive)

sorry turn off the v-sync if you see ripples then the 670 does not have a built in one... but if it does not keep it, unless you cant stand that every once and a while ripple
