Did BF3 come out then Premium a few months after? I cant remember, but anyway I would do as Zeal says, buy BF4, if you like it buy BF4 premium. If you like BF4 enough lets face it your gonna end up buying all the expansion packs.
This sort of behavior to me says cpu bottleneck, classic sign is CPU at full utilization and gpu usage bouncing up and down, its because the gpus are being held back.

Also try geforce 320.49 drivers, they are ok for me with my rig albeit I had maybe 3 game crashes in about 10 hours?
I wouldnt say for sure its cpu bottleneck, since other people with a 3570k and gtx 780 at 1440p get over 50fps average.Edited by $ilent - 10/1/13 at 3:18pm
