Hey all. There are probably a hundred posts about their computers and why it lags and all. But if anyone would like to shed some light on to helping my setup; which i think is fairly good then we will all be set!

I set both FPS settings to 200 in-game (Max Forground FPS / Max Background FPS)

And i have even tried the "Ambient Occlusion / Antialiasing - FXAA " (The latter was suggested from nVidia's website)

My setup is :
Intel Core i7 2600k @3.4GHZ
16 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 (EVGA)
Diablo 3 installed on my 120gb SSD which is also where my windows 7 is installed to.
I've got the latest gpu drivers installed.

I notice the biggest fps drops during act 3 on the bridge where theres a TON of units on the field. My FPS goes from (100-200) straight to 3-10 FPS.

Thanks for all the help everyone, It is greatly appreciated
Elmnt

Try setting the affinity to two cores for DiabloIII.exe.

Worked wonders for me.

Had the same happen to me with the new 300 Nvidia driver. Rolled back and it's gone!

Samurai, i'll try googling that technique but i am unaware of how to do that at the moment.

and I've been on the 2xx driver but noticed the same thing too, so i upgraded to 300 drivers.!

Thanks tho!
