I agree about the RAM issue. 2GB of RAM is the recommended requirement during XP days. With Win7 4GB is the minimum you should have, besides, RAM is so affordable nowadays you can get 16GB for under $100 or 8GB for about $45.

With one 720p video running and 4 Firefox tabs open I'm consuming 2.3GB of memory already (I have no other unnecessary services running in the background), with BF3 loaded that number jumps to about ~5.5GB.

Anyways have you tried changing the settings in the nvdia control panel to performance to see if you get a boost like that?
1:the brand is EXGA geforce or this model to be more exact :Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

2: well yea,u could say stuttering,its normal when i dont really move in the game but as soon as i look around,the screen sort of stops and starts u know,basically the frames drop to less then 5-6 even sometimes. Like when i try to look from a scope,it LMOST JAMMED FOR ABT 3-5 SECONDS,IM JUST SITTING HERE WITH MY KEYBOARD IN LAP LOOKING AT AN IMAGE!!! a 40$ image.......its pathetic man....

3: yea ive changed the settings to performance.No difference whatsoever Im just gona get an AMD GPU.
Before this one i had ATI Readeon XFX 5670 1GB/DDR5/128Bit and it was running BF3 on medium settings flawlessly at around 35fps. And on high i got arnd 20Fps. With this GPU i should be getting 120FPS @ULTRA at which resolution i play..

yeah this game had a lot of graphic problem. i remember ea released to many update for it and some sites created some software for setting up graphic options.
so if you have good frame in other games don't worry about your graphic card.

you really should double your RAM
it's fairly cheap, and will make a heck of a difference to your rig..

why tweak everything in sight, when more RAM will solve all your problems in one go..??

What I think is funny that the Obvious solution he is not willing to try ,Seriously dude what is stopping you from just picking up a matching pair of 4 GB or even 8

Does your board happen to be limited ? If not either your Internet has something to do with online and off line play or simple you need the ram

I bet you your bottom dollar you check your resource and ram you will be dragging it all trying to play that game when you can just end this silly charade

GO GET YOUR RAM !
