So I recently built a pc for a friend but we are having an issue with diablo 3.

parts are:

cpu: 3570k
mb: gigabyte z77 ds3h
gpu: MSI gtx 560 TI
psu: ocz 750w bronze
ram: kingston 8gb 1600
hd: 2.5" wd 500gb blue for laptops

we were playing diablo 3 and it is very choppy. The fps is averaging around 60, but the game play is not smooth, so I thought it was the gpu so I replaced his gtx 560 with my gtx 670, but still the same issue (I plugged in his gpu into my pc and it was flawless). So what is causing this issue? Is it because of the hard drive is slow? can it be the mb? Thanks guys!

Things like driver versions for mobo's, windows versions, patches, fresh install of os on your part, his part? etc.

go into the menu in diablo 3 and go to FPS foreground or background or something like that there will be a slider and a tick and untick box untick them and change the FPS limit to 200FPS i got much smoother frame rates then smack v-sync on thats what fixed my stuttering problem

From what I've heard, the game actually runs smoother on Radeon GPUs. This is a first, it's usually tilted in NVIDIA's favor. You are using 2 NVIDIA GPUs so this is beside the point.

Now from what you said, the GPUs both work fine in your own rig. This leads me to believe something is wrong with the other.

Have you monitored temps while gaming on your friends system?

I don't think its the gpu because even my evga gtx 670 sc is lagging in his pc. I'm thinking its either the mb or the hd, but can either one affect gameplay?

I would definitely try reverting everything back to stock (CPU/GPU/RAM) just to see if the overclock is what is causing issues.

I didn't see, are you playing from the same location? This game is hardly that demanding for OCed PCs and latest tier video cards. D3 seems to be sensitive to network problems.

Also, has it been tested with other games?
