Horrible Frame Rates

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm using an ASUS Radeon HD 7870 2GB card. I have noticed that in Diablo 3 runs at 160fps everything max and 1920x1080. However during certain game events like lightning on the screen the frames drop to 11 for a bit and then back to 160. I'm using Fraps to monitor the framerates, The newest version ASUS GPU Tweak does not work well in Windows 8. It does not show the memory usage. I use MSI Afterburner to monitor the memory usage and temps etc. Afterburner says that max memory usage during gameplay is just over 400MB. WTH? 2GB memory and not even 1/4 is used. Is there some setting in Catalyst Control Center that I overlooked? If I get a second 7870 in crossfire, would that help any? Seems like a waste however to get a second card considering that the max usage for the game is only 400MB
