Hello all at Tom's Hardware, recently I installed a second gtx 560 and I've been playing bf3 and my frames have increased from around 80 to 150, however every 5-10 seconds i get a massive frame drop all the way down to 60 or 70. What could be the problem here?

Driver? Resolution? Power supply? Cpu? I mean seriously how could anyone answer your question without ANY information whatsoever about the machine??

this tells us nothing about the PSU other than the claimed wattage it has

make and model are much more important
