My specs:

- I5 750 O/C to 3.0GHz
- 4 GB G.Skill
- XFX 5770
- OCZ Vertex 2 60GB (BF3 installed on)

I have the latest drivers and game version.... any tips? At this point it is making the game unplayable.
I know/have heard BF3 taking up a lot of memory, you could be running out and having your system trying to cache and read from your ssd cache causing this. See how much RAM its taking up next time you play.

In the beta with 4GB of RAM i was running at 3.9GB of used memory, and BF3 would stutter and tear like crazy. Upgraded to 8GB and it's fine now.

I was having some stuttering issues as well when I was temporarily running on my server, but it seems on a 2600k, 9800GX2s (in quad) can't keep up with the demands that BF3 have. I still have random visual lag which results in my aim or myself getting killed, though its not often that it happens (i still suck at bf3!)

Thanks for the tip. I've been meaning to upgrade to 8GB anyway, and for only 50 bucks... not a big deal.

Try this (directions are in the description of the video)? Buddy says the console command resolved his stutter issue.

Too short IMO. I preferred the Bad Company 2 campaign.
