My System Specs

Default 965 bottlenecking in BF3?

See system specs. Ignore the 5830, it's currently out of the system, and would only be in there for folding purposes anyways.

I tried running BF3 at Ultra, 1920x1200. Frame rates seemed a little low.
Is the problem my stock clocked Phenom II 965? I'm thinking it might be. If it is, I'm not in a position to switch over to Intel yet, but I can reduce BF3 settings to Very High if need be.

Anyone else running high end video cards and quad core phenoms who have run into this problem?
