  1. ever since i got my new pc i get spikes on diablo ii that last a few seconds, the spikes aren't ping related, and my fps stays at a constant 60 (capped) until the spike happens, in which case it drops to zero until the spike ends, only diablo 2 freezes and it happens every few minutes for a 3-4 seconds

    intel core i5 cpu 750-2.67ghz
    4gb g.skill ram
    gigabyte ga-p55-usb3 motherboard

    ive edited every feature in the catalyst control center and nothing fixes it, fan control, catalyst ai, mipmap detail, vsync, opengl, i've set diablo to directdraw and direct3d

    i have the latest video card driver and gave updating my bios a shot (version f8), virtual memory is set to 6144-12288

    really don't have any more guesses or much information so if anybody needs anything let me know

    thanks

    Yikes! I'm sure you have already done this, but your machine has the XP update for Diablo II from Blizzard's website, right?
