i think You can run it On High Settings With 45FPS...Your GPU is Holding Back Your CPU... If You Upgrade Your Gpu you easly can run it on With ultra 60FPS+ :)

That certainly isn't a wonderful GPU considering it's roughly equal to a HD 5450. However, with APU's you will commonly see variances in performance due to differences in RAM frequencies. It is possible that you are experiencing irregular performance due to below average RAM. What is your RAM speed?

Depends how much fps is okay for you. I had GTX 750 OC 1Gb, and I ran BF3 about 40fps with same settings. Ti is bit stronger, I would say about 50fps. :)

ultra at your resolution for good fps and an upgrade to your CPU is highly advised as it will limit your performance in the multiplayer a lot, you can get a cheap phenom II x4 or athlon II x4 second hand, that will greatly improve your performance in the multiplayer.

More. Bf doesn't require powerful CPU in sp, but multiplayer would be a problem to that E7300. Maybe stable 30fps on low-medium in campaign. :)
