That Physics score is low: 7113
I would certainly 'guess' and say this is part, if not most, of your problem.

I would start out simple. Make sure you've got all of the most up-to-date drivers for your mobo installed from the ASUS website and make sure you've got your BIOS setup properly--it may be worthwhile to do a quick sweep through your BIOS to double-check. If you don't have an overclock in there (and it doesn't look like it from the 3dmark report), I would reset the BIOS to default and start fresh.

Once that's done, try running the benchmark again. Get a program called Real Temp, too, just to monitor your CPU temps (just to rule this out). If you score in the normal range for a 3770k (physics score), and your temps seem normal, I would then load up bf3 and see what type of performance you're getting. I would also leave up the performance tab from the Task Manager while testing bf3 so that you can refer to the CPU usage afterwards.

Once you get bf3 performing normally, at stock speeds, you should probably setup a mild overclock on your CPU. Especially if you're playing multiplayer. But I wouldn't worry about that until you get stock settings performing properly.

I play with 4xMSAA just fine and always stay above 60fps with everything @Ultra.

If this were such a "common" problem, then why would it be telling me these results are low for my system?

Sorry mate. 3Dmark physics and graphics scores a bit under average. Might wana run again just to check.

Well i'm playing at 2560x1440 on a 27" and feel like bf3 optimization got worse after the last patch, so I just turned it down.

1440p using one 680 w/ 4xAA is definitely not ideal, you're probably hitting the 2GB ceiling on the card. tongue.gif

I know it's low, so maybe there are some settings I can change in the control panel that will help? I know a couple of you have given me suggestions.

BTW guys I just want to say thank you to everyone for helping me out here.

You can try prefer maximum performance, but in my experience it doesn't really do anything. Download EVGA precision and monitor your clocks on the graphics card, maybe it's underclocking.

Also your processor is listed at 3ghz in your 3DMark11 score, isn't the stock 3770 @3.5? Maybe it's not set up right in BIOS or something.

He won't hit it at 1080p. 1440 yes, but 1080 2GB vRAM is plenty.
