How good you run BF4 is of no importance. This is BC2.

 

FPS > set highter if you want (80?). 59.xxxx is a weird amount (and you will never get to 80 with that setting)

and could give problems for some, others have problems with rounded numbers.


FOV > does not always work right and can lag a game up if set to high. Reduce and test. (I think 55 is standard)

 

Renderaheadlimit > can improve performance on 0, or you can try 3. Depends on system config.

 

DXversion > set to auto, which normally is standard, if you are not having blackscreen ingame.

lol, I said could. You asked for help so I am just giving you options

and things I have come across including set refresh rates preventing good fps.

With reinstalling the actual settings are not changed. What you could also try as a reset is

to delete the settings file and start the game to create a new one. Other then that I must say

I am clueless unfortunately.
