Problems with fps

Ive been trying so many options and i just still cant get to have a decent amount of fps playing the game.
Il post my pc setup and the setting im using right now in game.

My complete pc info can be seen here or the fast info ive typed it below
http://speccy.piriform.com/results/fYBl ... RQb18fefDd

RUNNING 4xDiablo3

PC SETUP
mobo: asus p8z68-v pro gen3
intel i7 3770k 4400mhz
16gb ddr3
samsung 830 128gb ssd
asus geforce gtx 770 2gb

WINDOWS SETTINGS
power thing set to max performance
videocard setting set to max performance

ISBOXER:
Running 4 windows stacked on top of eachother
1680x1050
cpu round rubin
fps max 60/30/30/30

D3 SETTINGS

Vertical Sync: Not checked (off)
Reflection: Not checked (off)

Texture Quality: High
Shadow Quality: Off
Physics: Low
Clutter Density: Off

Anti-Aliasing: Not checked (off)
Low FX: Not checked (off)

Max Foreground FPS: at 60 but not checked
Max Background FPS: at 30 AND checked

With theese setting my fps is spiking down to less than 10 fps some times. It can when theres nothing happening run at 60fps but as soon as im in fights etc the frames jsut drops down and its not playable. Is my current pc setup to weak or what is it? Some help is very much appreciated since im lost in what to do now i feel like ive tryed everything.

Re: Problems with fps

We need to know specifically what the bottleneck is. See HOWTO: Tweak your framerate, Identifying framerate bottlenecks. You can post the report if needed

Otherwise I would start by using the CPU Strategy Wizard and set it to All windows use all CPUs, and let it limit the foreground window's FPS to 60 for smoother overall performance, and go from there. I don't think this is the solution you need, but it could help a little bit. Definitely need the info above.

Re: Problems with fps

Is my expectations to high to the Rig i have?
I would have thought my pc would be able to run it with the setting i listed above pretty well. Maybe i was wrong.

Re: Problems with fps

Your PC sounds fine. From your report it looks like CPU loads get up to about 90-95% and GPU at about 89%, and 50% of your RAM. So you are pushing it pretty hard at certain times.

Try the CPU Strategy Wizard as I described in my previous post. Also, you didn't mention from your D3 video settings what the windowed mode is at; we usually recommend Windowed Fullscreen for D3.
