I'm on an i5 3570K and the lowest I've dropped was 40 FPS
First of all.... your post amounts to "I'm not having a problem therefore nothing's wrong".

Again.... WRONG GENERATION. Stop peeing on my leg and then telling me it's raining, people. I'm so happy all of you have tons of money to plonk down on brand new crap every chance you get but until there's a way for me to get a piece of that action, I'll be entitled to my opinion that the Game Engine's Code and handling of NON-GRAPHICAL data + Threading is the real problem ...Meanwhile the Devs/Programmers have even backed us up on those observations (don't make me dig that up too, b/c I will). Otherwise how would you explain me getting the EXACT same frame rate in Zergy areas I normally get, that I also got when my game bugged out and every single Wall Texture in the game was invisible to me, causing me to have unintended visibility of every single player withing the nearest 1000 ft? ....EXPLAIN THAT.
PS: The Devs have also said they've like to introduce Non-Radial Culling priority to the game as well to help Snipers and Long-Range aircraft. Again, they're AWARE of the problems as well as the unfair "Pay Intel to Win" status quo right now.
I don't know whether to pick NC or TR =s. Played all 3 factions, mainly as heavy assault. Should I choose based on the faction weapon trait differences and the exclusive vehicles?
A lot of people will try to tell you that NC is gimped by their weapon designs and while even the Devs seem to believe that, my Experience with NC has been that the weapons CAN be controlled well enough by firing slower or less often
with "Burst Fire" if you have the skill and the smooth framerate for them. The REAL problem comes from being pelted with n00b-friendly faster-ROF guns in that every single "Flinch" you recieve basically multiplies the amount of Spread-Penalty you already have regardless of how much damage it's actually doing to you and if your Spread/Recoil was already pretty high to begin with b/c you're NC, then it just becomes impossible to make your bullets go where your crosshair is supposed to be placing them. and the super short TTK in CQC means you lose those fights instantly. This is why we often have to crutch really hard on the "MAX" in CQC as NC because unlike the other factions, our stock MAX has this SemiAutomatic 2-hit-kill Super-Shotgun that makes the other Factions QQ like little girly men.
