BF3 low FPS, why?

  1. I have an interesting problem that I am hoping someone could help me out with. I really don't have any issues with other games, but when I play BF3, on low medium high or ultra, I have very low frame rate. Ranges from up to 60 and as low as 12 even on low. Here are my specs:

    Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
    MSI 750i Mobo (slightly older, but shouldn't be that big of an issue)
    Intel Core 2 Quad @ 2.5 GHz (Same as above)
    6 GB ram
    Nvidia GTX 560 Ti 2GB
    And a 500 GB HDD with 80 GB free.

    Any Ideas?

    I hope this helps

    I also only had issues in bf3. Here is a bit of info I received from the company (they build overclocked systems at very competitve prices), I buy many of my pc components from:


    "There were numerous issues with the GTX 580 specifically with Battlefield , But they sorted it out in their newest driver update , Update your Nvidia drivers too
    win7-winvista-64bit-290.53-beta-driver."


    Hope it works for you.

    A buddy of mine was having a similar issue. He changed his Nvidia settings to let "3D application decide", under the 3d settings in the nvidia control panel. This along with the latest drivers, and modest settings made BF run as it should for him.
