I also work in computers and I feel your pain. Diablo III ran for the most part alright (about expected on my HD 7670M), the one day Windows says "Configuring Features" while I try to shut it down. Suddenly 1-10fps on Diablo III, changing settings didn't do much, so I updated my drivers. Updating my drivers helped, now it runs at 60fps and spikes down to 10-30 at times (Which really sucks Inferno Act II).
I just wanted to post a little bit of shared pain.
On my partner's computer she runs 2 9800gtx+'s (gts 250 in otherwords - the are the same card) in sli.
16 gb DDR3, and a AMD Phenom II x3. Proper voltage to the rails. Well ventilated.
The only way we've been able to get the game to run stable is to:
Set it to use only 1 card.
Downclock the card 100mhz on both the core clock and the memory.
Turn on V-sync. Limit the frames to 50fps.
Most updated drivers in place.
It still seems to stutter every now and again.
However, on my setup:
AMD Phenom II x4
A single ATI Radeon 4870 Toxic (overclocked)
The game runs smooth as silk on max settings, haven't had to mess with anything. And I'm probably not even running the most recent drivers.
Go figure :/
I have same issues. The GPU usage stay at 100%, causing GPU temperature raise up very quickly and fan auto-speed-up make it runs EXTREMELY noisy.
Besides, even ths GPU stay at 100%, the fps is still very low, about 30~50. Even in town, it's also slow.
My hardware/OS config is
CPU: I5 2300
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
Driver: latest nvidia driver 301.42
- No over-clocking, no abnormal settings.
- I have reset all game settings to default, nothing changed
- I have tried reboot OS several times, nothing changed
- I have do all suggestions listed here http://us.battle.net/support/en/article/diablo-iii-video-performance-issues
ps2: When I run WOW, set all graphic to high, the GPU usage is stay about 25% at maximum, usually is 15~20%. So I am very sure it's an issue of Diablo

I have a I7 3930k, 16gb ram with a 6870.
system worked great.
I upgraded to a 7950 and what followed was: 100% GPU utilization with high fan speeds and high temps. Replaced with 6870 and everything works great.
I wish i knew what the problem was because it's not worth using in it's current state.
I am currently running an i7 4470k - corsair gold 750watt psu, and asus gtx660 gpu - I can play anything on high settings except for D3, I turned everything in game to low settings and it still stutters just like the folks here have experienced. i am running the latest gpu drivers as well and will not scale back just fo D3 - I would like to play D3 but not at the compromise of affecting all the other games I am playing.
