Mine floats around 60 and dips into the 30's and 40's if a big battle's going on. Is this processor, RAM, or video card related? Help me, computer literates!

Mostly RAM for that sort of thing.

So if I get more will the game automatically go up to a higher fps, or is it in settings somewhere to change the frames you want to play at?

It's hard to say without actually knowing how much RAM, what CPU, and what graphics card you have. If you've got a good CPU and GPU, but very little RAM, then obviously you need more RAM; if you've got a ton of ram but your GPU is from the early Jurassic era, that's something to look at.

I never had FPS issues before, I was always at 60 and never dropped at any given moment. Then I saw a post that said making your FPS cap at benchmark, turning off the shadows and turning off vertical sync increased your FPS, so I did, I'm mostly floating through 120 - 160 FPS but by your problems, doing what I did shouldn't fix it.

No this was built a few months ago by my friend and I have all the graphics on max. I like the game looking pretty, I don't want to turn the graphics down to gumby settings to increase my fps lol.

I kinda wanna say that graphics holds the most effect on fps. If the fps dips in big battle, chances are it is because of all the effects going on with the battle.

Yeah, I'd say it with your video card. Also... have you tried gamebooster? If not, go download it and try it. I actually have no video card right now and for another game it lagged a lot, but I used gamebooster and it was fine. It's a good program if you want maximum gaming output.
