I have a gtx 770 and I'm wondering why the gpu usage keeps jumping from 0 to like 48%.

Thanks in advance.

That can be normal behaviour if your web browser has GPU acceleration enabled. A lot of stuff like flash video and ads will make some use of the GPU in that case, and that can cause your usage to spike up and down, the reason the usage probably spikes up to 50% is because in a web browser workload, the GPU clocks remain down at their idle speed, so the usage percentage is higher than if the GPU clocked up to full speed to do the work.
