What do you guys suggest I upgrade first? This game is bringing my system to its knees, even with everything on low.

im going to guess here, but looking at your system i think what you should upgrade first is your gpu and memory. 2gb is pretty low nowadays, and theres always alot of stuff going on in bf3 at any given time.

as for you gpu, its pretty old i think

If you want to have frames no less than 80 then yes.

ok guys, this is driving me crazy. i just wanted to know if anyone has had this problem so far?

i have literally tried about every way to increase my fps with my crossfired 6870's:
1: use beta 11.10 drivers and go through safe mode to clean old drivers
2: lower everything from ultra to high to medium to low ( i only saw about a 10 fps change when i lowered to low)
3: overclocked cpu to 3.6 (did it to 3.8 but then stuff started acting funny with bf3) and overclocked both gpus (both at 940 MHz and 1100 MHz right now, dont want to oc any further without a stronger psu)
4: disable crossfire (this seemed to work the best, though i dont remember what fps range i was at)

from ultra to medium, and HSAO and SSAO off and on, i still get around 25- 35 fps when the action is going around everywhere. what do you all think? is there anything i can do to fix this that i havent tried yet?
I'm experiencing the same thing with my rig, I think we are being CPU limited. I seem to have a max ceiling for frames, and if my settings are lower, I'm at the same ceiling, but my GPU usage goes down.

I get about 60-90fps with settings maxxed on the rush map outside, and my gpu usage is very high, if i turn some of the candy off I get the same frames but my gpu usage goes to about 80%

In conquest now, I am seeing like 60% gpu usage, getting like 40 frames in most places.

I think my CPU just can't give more information to my gpus any faster, there is too much crap going on at once.

I'm on a solid 40+ with a single 6970 in Caspian Max out with No MSAA. Crossfire feels horrid with fps drops and inconsistency. I am enjoying the new map a lot now on 1 card.

Are people using SLI >480/570/580, experiencing low GPU usage in conquest due to what I'm guessing is a CPU bottleneck?

Hmmm weird bump your CPU OC a bit, and see if you can get the usage of the GPU's up.
