Hey guys,

I am running a gigabyte 7970 factory oced to 1000mhz. I oced it to 1159mhz core and 1650mhz memory.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also running a 2500k at 4.2ghz with hyper 212 evo.

So the problem is, i'm actually lagging in diablo 3(haven't played anything else on it yet, just finished build two days ago). Like i get 5 second game freezes(i can move, but enemies don't. Usually end up dead but the time it catches up). Had some trouble with it only wanting to run motherboard graphics before but i think(thought mabye) i had that figured out.

If you can still move, it sounds more like game problem than the graphic card problem. What drivers are you using? Try different ones and see if it helps.

Have you tried reinstalling the game? Blizzard games especially wow tend to have issues like this.

sounds like a server problem rather than hardware. The connection could be unstable, since you yourself is able to move and not the enemies. You could try to reinstall it to fix it but blizzard games tend to have these problems. I remember D2 had that problem and that was because of internet connection problems.

Could also be a problem with your internet connection or a problem on Blizzards end. It sounds like a server-client-connection issue typical for online games with servers under stress.

Maybe just try it again when your sure that the servers are running fine. (Avoid peak times etc.)

Check your ping when that happens. Sometimes D3 will lag spike to like a 3000 ms ping. Probably a server issue and not a problem with the GPU.
