That is good but for how much that card is (650 Euros here) i would say it's rather disappointing...but as long as you are happy then that's all that matters

Just out of curiosity... what would you have expected? Average FPS seems to be about twice as much as yours...

Yes the average fps is very very good but i expected it to always stay above 60 fps on those settings...

To be Honest i blame game developers for not creating a challenge for PC's maybe that's because the PS3 and Xbox are still around which i don't even know how old they are now.
I mean think about Crysis it is still used as a benchmark tool and when they made Crysis 2 for the consoles well it's not that much harder to run then the 1st one and i think this is why i'm disappointed.

Added next 16 gb Memory ram from kingston (the same as early) so now I have/I need:

Case - CORSAIR Graphite Series 600T Special Edition White
CPU - Intel Core i7-3820 3.60GHz Sandy Bridge-E CPU
Motherboard - ASUS SABERTOOTH X79 Intel X79 Socket 2011
RAM Memory -
Kingston 32GB Quad Channel DDR3 1600MHz XMP HyperX
GPU - ASUS GeForce GTX670 DirectCU II TOP
First HDD - OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SATA III 2.5" SSD
Cooling - CORSAIR CWCH80 Hydro Series H80
Sound card - ASUS Xonar D2 Soundcard - 7.1 Ultra Fidelity
PSU - CORSAIR AX850 Professional Series Gold
LCD monitor - ASUS VG278H 27” LCD 3D, 120 Hz ( with NVIDIA 3D Vision™ 2 )

Instead fans from Hydro colling H80 I used two 120mm Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850 RPM Cooling Fans and one more inside case..

that fans are great.. high airflow volume and .. quiet.. better than all others..

The newly designed motor and motor support mechanism of the GentleTyphoon uses a double vibration reduction structure. The new support mechanism uses coil dampers to greatly reduce vibration.

CORSAIR AX850 Professional Series™ Gold - 80 PLUS® Gold Certified Fully-Modular Power Supply

My PSU Corsair AX850 died... in first decade of February 2016 .. but I had 7 years warranty (from may 2012 - may 2019) so I sent warranty request to Corsair. I get RMA number and sent faulty PSU to Corsair [ I'm surprised because now in UK is Corsair Return Centre - before was in continental Europe - for example when I replaced my headset CORSAIR HS1A Gaming Headset (problems with microphone) for a Corsair VENGEANCE 1300]. Today I received information from Corsair, that ( probably ) I will have PSU Corsair AX860.. (instead 80 Plus Gold - 80 Plus Platinum )... So keep fingers crossed and... CU in BF4
