So my GPU being at below 50% on just about everything but I'm stuck at 4GB RAM usage and 80-100% GPU power all the time is a CPU problem?
There is literally nothing I can do to make my computer better with the current CPU and Motherboard?
(Which is my entire question here)
Fraps is completely CPU intensive. It has no affect on your GPU.
Yes, only have 4GB worth of RAM is bad, but if you can have 50-60FPS without Fraps on, then 20-30 FPS with Fraps on, then that shows a CPU and yes, a Ram problem. But it could also be the speed of the RAM.
BF3 is a very GPU intensive game, less-so CPU, but Fraps is very CPU intensive.
If you buy in-store, and it doesn't change the FPS, then you can return it within 14-30 days usually if you are unsatisfied.
You might want to log on to a computer based forum because they can give you more specific details, and their would be alot more people to offer quality advice.
