I upgraded from a GTS 450 to a GTX 550 ti and I have the same problem, in fact it got WORSE after the upgrade, it used to stop stuttering after I played for a few minutes during my first game of the day, now its constant.

Inter i7-2600k
64 bit Win 7
GTX 550 Ti (Superclocked)

ok I got same issue here . I was using GTX 460, i got screen flashing , it seems like some random numbers or code and happens random time. so I changed my card to brand new MSI GTX 660 ti, but problem still there . Then changed a new Monitor ,but no luck at all.
And it only happens on playing Diablo 3.

Need Blue post to give us a solution.

I have the same thing with my 660ti 2 gig. I play at 60fps because i have Vsync on and ill go through a tp and it will change to 30fps All i haveto do is go back through the portal to town and go right back where i was just at and it will be back to 60fps sometimes when i start the game it will be at 30fps , ill go though a tp and return to town and its back at 60fps......i have no idea why its doing it.

Same issue here, 2600k, 560Ti SoC, 16gb ram, running off of an SSD, sabertooth mobo, all drivers up to date, my computer is colder than my refrigerator...

Aaaaand HUGE fps issues, stuttering, sometimes I simply can't play for 3-4 seconds and can continue only after I die. It's definitely game's problem, it ALWAYS happens on the bridge of korsikk and core of arreat (at the end with lighting effects), it's started happening since latest patch (had no problems before) and it happens regardless of my video settings. My computer is VERY well maintained as I'm an IT "expert" (although I hate such self aproval naming conventions, but I live for computers, both profesionally and for a hobby).

All other games, such as BF3 and Crysis 2 and ARMA 2 and such graphically intense titles, run flawlessly at max settings. Diablo 3 is just not very well optimised, since graphics aren't anything special and it still has performance problems.

If any Blizzard developers read this, guys, never forget the 20-80 law.

I recently got a PNY Geforce GTX660 TI 2Gb, upgraded from a GT 220. What is incredibly sad is that my Nividia gt 220 runs sc2 ON medium without any stuttering, yet when I turn sc2 down to the LOWEST FREAKING SETTINGS! and overclock my gpu to a stable but supposedly good bandwidth, core clock, voltage, and power limit it stutters... whats even more sad is that it doesn't matter what graphics quality you are using, IT STUTTERS THE SAME! So I play sc2 on extreme and it runs the same on lowest settings with my gt 600.
I am so pissed off right now.

make sure you have the latest catalyst control center.

also, try turning off Tesselation and whatever that Anamorphic thing is called.
