Well, I've been playing Battlefield 3 on my 550 Ti, I've been noticing annoying stuttering since earlier on. The nVidia control panel is set to "Performance", and here's what MSI Afterburner shows:
It seems that it's only using about 60% of the GPU. I'm aware of a bottleneck, but it didn't seem to be this bad before. Any thoughts on what the problem might be? Also, I noticed that if I put the overclock too high causing a driver crash, the clocks will show and act like they are 50% stock speeds, and won't go back to normal.
