prepare to get your mind blown:
For those people who could not get this fix to work try the following:
disabling sound removes stuttering completley . lowering the available sound channels to 16 reduces framelag and stuttering and its playable again in rakkis crossing.
I dare saying that this is the root cause of the problem and the hardwareclass/vsync thingy more of a workaround.
thats why iam interested in people who got a fix by changing hardwareclass : please remove all your modifications in the d3prefs.txt and to the nvidia diablo3 profile and try disable sound.
does this fix your problem?
if yes, ill report to blizzard.
@SpiritSound - GT9800 has no energysaving options - just ignore settings which arent there.
better disable sound :D
/edit : i removed my hardwareclass settings and set it back to 4 - enable vsync, antialiasing, all max, enable foreground fps and all stuff.
with sound channels low or off: everything else has no effect

This worked flawlessly. A lot less load-up drop (that horrid 10 FPS you get for the first 5-10 seconds after zoning into the first fight) and no more in-fight drops, fps lag, stutter or spikes. Left all settings at high except those discussed in the post. FPS is a cool constant 60. (not sure why it still doesn't go above that since it should but w/e)
