GTX 275 with low FPS, How to fix?

Posts: 37
I can play D3 pretty well. (Good enough) with the frame rates im getting but on certain acts (III,IV) it drops ALLOT!! Im able to work though if im really careful but i have killed off many HC toons because of extreme lag on my end. I was just wondering what configurations that i may change to improve this. I know i need to upgrade my Video card but i feel the GTX 275 should be able to handle it ok. Ive put all settings on diablo3 on low with a res of 1080p (id prefer to stay there if possible, I like playing with the game at full screen. Not cropped like the 720p gets me. System specs are -

Core I7 920 (no/oc)
Asus P6T
6Gb OCZ 1600mhz
MSI Geforce GTX 275 896mb
Internet speed is at 10mb/sec

Most of the time it will stay at 60fps but when huge mobs come at me (Lighting Signal Fires) for example it drops to 10-20 FPS and has got me killed several times. I tried tweaking the settings in Nvidia Control panel a little and doesn't seem to help any. Anyone else have this card and is able to get at least 40fps or so in huge mob battles? Or is there a way I can change my resolution down to 720 or whatever but have it full screen, like stretch it or something? I hate how there are black bars on top and bottom when i change the res. Im pretty sure my drivers are up to date too.. 306.97

Thanks for any help anyone is able to give me.

Have you tried "Restore Defaults" in the nvidia control panel?
