My CPU usage is generally 70% when playing BF3, temps are around 70degress with 4.7OC. So, IMHO, game also uses CPU. It could be your CPU mate

CPU and RAM are significantly underpowered mate, its very CPU intensive and requires 4-8Gb RAM to run smoothly

You should be bolding your CPU. Dual cores run like garbage on the frostbite engine (unless you have hyper-threading).

big cpu bottleneck there and a slight ram bottleneck.
its best to run BF3 on a quadcore especially when using a high end card like 6970.

Look for a used Q6600 or Q9550 if you're willing to spend more.
If you have a bigger budget, consider getting a new mb+cpu
FX6300 or i5 would be great for bf3
