So when I was playing Battlefield 3 I noticed that the Gpu usage was jumping around quite a bit. Does anyone know the cause for this and is it normal. The flat line at the end is because I shut Battlefield down.

It's normal. Just going in and out of more demanding areas (such as an explosion or shooting).

Ah, That makes sense. I only thought this might be of concern because my old card was always hovering around 90% and never dropped as low as 60%.
