    Battlefield 3 on G74SX-BBK7 (BestBuy Model)

    Jello!

    I have the best buy model g74. I'm trying to run BF3 on my 28" monitor at a 1920/1080 resolution but I'm getting terrible frames at even complete LOW settings. Is this going to be normal or is this hopefully a driver issue? (by terrible frames I mean between 25-35) I'm looking to at least get 40+ out of the machine, which seems like it should be able to do no problem.

    Or am I just completely wrong? Anyone else with this model have any tips or better performance?

    I was running it on my Best Buy model last night for about 4 hours set at ultra and haven't had any issues at all so far, however I have not tried sending it to another monitor I have just been playing it on the laptops screen. I am wondering if that may be the issue, have you tried playing it on the laptops screen yet, to test the performance there ?
    Current Laptop: ASUS G74SX-BBK7

    Previous Laptop: ASUS G72GX-RBBX05
    (Still own it, but it has the annoying whitescreen flicker due to poor LCD cable placement problem)
