Maybe someone can correct me if What I said is wrong but I think iam not that off lol.

i have an intel i7 3770k, it is not overclocked (yet) because i don't want to overclock it until i get my aftermarket cooler and a larger case (might be a couple months). but i am using the passive "boost mode" in my bios. my gpu came stock overclocked. to clarify, my gpu load isn't high while browsing the web, my clock just spikes.. could it be hardware acceleration enabled by some web pages? I've heard that the spikes are completely normal, and the GPU is just regulating itself.

I don't think i quite understand why my GPU usage would be higher while playing games if i have a good cpu, i just don't see the connection

Well i opend my gpu usage while browing and mine is doing the same exact thing like urs! It will spike up for a few seconds then go back down I think thats perfectly normal or at least it seems to be that way?!.......... Some games are more cpu bound while other games lean more towards the Gpu aka video card. Are those the only 2 games you play? Beacuse id be happy to test them for you but I dont own Hitman or the other one, iam curious if we would get similar results what other games do you have btw? Arma 2,Arma 3, Modern warfare 2 and 3, Crysis 1, Battlefield 2 and 3, War Thunder, Wings of pray, FSX flight simulator x, Dcs world, Flaming cliffs 2, Dcs Black shark, Tom Clancys Hawx 1 and 2, Dirt 3,Aliens vs predator, I am alive, Metro 2033, Metro last light,Stalker call of pripyat,Just cause 2, iL 2 cliffs of dover, Splinter cell conviction,Splinter Cell Double agent. Have any of those we can test on?

I was running 5760x1200 on (1) GTX 680, playing BF3 in the middle monitor on ultra, no issues (around 70fps)... I moved to 5760x1080 last night and it now runs at 79fps.. you won't have an issue at all.

BTW, 120hz monitors are almost as great as an SSD upgrade imo... I'll never go back to 60hz.

I tested this by moving my game from my 60hz monitor to my 120hz monitor.
