Edit: #2: I find there is no bottleneck in my system with regards to BF3 performance. I noted the GPU goes anywhere from ~70%-99% usage while playing, so I know the GPU is being fed well. Measured with MSI's afterburner. I would say my performance experience is quite similar to THG's results noted here.

Here is why my system does so well. Apparently this game is much more GPU limited than CPU limited.
I also play at 1680x1050. You have a very different setup than me, but I was having random lag spikes and turning hbao/ ssao of in bf3 solved it for me. Worth a shot.
