I recently bought a Radeon 6850 and i noticed that the fps in diablo 3 is stable but is very choppy(even on my 19" monitor) and in wow on high settings(not ultra) im getting 20-35 fps on my tv(1080p). my friend's 4890 performs way better at the moment

My Specs:

AMD Phenom X2 II (Unlocked to B55, OC'ed to 3.6 Ghz)
4GB Kingston hyperx blu ram
Xclio Greatpower 500 watt
MSI 760gm-e51 mobo
Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 rpm (X2) in Raid 0

The main culprit im guessing is the psu but idk


Thanks in Advance

tell us your friends config
your processor seems to be bottlenecking
try to over clock a little more to see whether it fixes the problem or not

i had read in some review that perfromance in diablo 3 is greatly increased if installed on a ssd+ your friend has a true quad core processor
unlocked preocessors are not very reliable and not expected to performe like a true quad core

your cpu BOTTLENECKING the card, however your friend got a much better CPU than you that is why he's getting better performance, phenom ll x2 are kinda dead.
