Just came across this in forums should help few people a lot .

Quote:
here's a tip

go to wherever you have BF3 Installed
mine is: D:\Origin\Origin Games\Battlefield 3 for example

then select the 'bf3.exe'


right click on the exe and go to the compatibility tab

then tick the box that says

"Disable Desktop Composition"

press apply

this will disable windows aero when you open the game and frees up vram

I game at 2560X1600 on 480SLI and sat at 1500MB Vram usage all the time

doing this trick frees up 3-400 mb vram meaning the computer is not bottlenecked

maxxed out, BF3 runs at 1200MB vram usage at the very most.

works for me, haven't checked for sure but looked at my ingame Vram usage and it's no where near max any more.


Additionally for Nvidia users, there is a new beta driver out today meant to fix lots of BF3 graphics bugs, performance issues, etc.

Hope this fixes my issues....
