hey guys recently i got a new gpu (radeon hd 7970 xfx core edition) and playing battlefield 3 it feels slow on battlefield 3. when im sprinting around on battlefield 3 it feels laggy but im still getting good framerates. average of about 60 fps on 1920x1080 everything ultra except msaa which is off. also when im playing skyrim it feels the same way playing on 1st person mode except when im playing on 3rd person its better blacklight retribution plays fine everything maxed out on the gpu to.

I say try an empty server and run around, and pick one with low latency like 9 or less and see if the problem persists.
I'd uninstall the drivers and then wipe the drivers off with driver sweeper and try and install the drivers again.

its not as bad in an empty server but still noticeable.

Have you checked your task manager to see if there are any non-game processes that might be sucking up CPU cycles?

How much memory is installed on the motherboard?

Wild guess, but do you play on a tv with game mode off? That will make it feel like this.
