That doesn't justify it being laggy only in one specific zone.
Are you using Ambient Occlusion and if so at what setting? Check in the Nvdia Control Panel. Its a fairly hew feature and Nvdia made a big deal how it improves the appearance of shadows in D3. Its a needless FPS killer.

as fas as SLi goes i can seperate anti-aliasing onto the second GPU in my 590 as well as a host of other multi-gpu options such as rendering successive frames on each graphics processor. all via the nVidia panel and handled in the drivers from what i can determine.
Might be more to do with hard drive load times than your graphics card.
I hear ya. I'm playing off a work station
I play with 2 GTX690s i7 and SSDs in a raid and I still get lose FPS.
Although if I just alt tab when my FPS goes down, it goes back to 60.
amd 1100t (6 cores) @ 4.1ghz oc'ed
ocz flex ex 1600mhz ddr3 ram 7-6-6-24 latency
msi 790fx-gd70 motherboard
same problem. its the game engine, not your system. nothing you can do about it. the game engine is the bottleneck when these fps drops happen.
skyrim had a similar problem at release, bethesda quickly fixed it after a modder found out the cause of the skips..........look up skyboost to see whats wrong with diablo 3, same principle applies
use optimized compilers when you build your binaries blizzard. no use in having a cpu past 1998 if you arent taking advantage of the new instructions in said new processors such as mine

seems like it's a nvidia specific problem?
running 6850HD here and i play fast chars like ww barb and tr monk, rakki's is an important part of my runs so it hasn't lag a bit
first update nvidia drivers,
try going into nvidia control panel and set everything to "application set" so that d3 takes control of the card
also running on HDD or SSD?

I have i7, on board sound card, but a really good mother board that supports sli.
I tried turning on Vsync in nvida and off in game, no difference. \
However, reducing sound helped a little bit, however still stutters. Before it was impossible.
Now i get around 10 frames..
ps. i made my game really pretty with nvidia control panel, maxed everything out. Game looks really nice now. I will update my sound drivers n see if it helps
I run far cry 3, bf3 all on ultra without problems...
Had the same, tried EVERYTHING, but have it solved now...
Too bad im on EU servers :P
I read many solutions including MSI Afterburner with Riva tools to set frame limit to 60 FPS and what not, didnt help me a bit... played along with settings and so on, and finally found it for me.
Its the sound setting.... It's on 'High' ?
Put it to Medium, not Low (Low didnt change anything for me), Medium. See if that helps.
I have no more issues @ Rakkis, steady running at 60 FPS
Btw I do also still have this Riva tuner thing installed to run the game at 60 FPS, because it just runs smoother (no tearing). If it matters.
