My System Specs


Instead of dropping the resolution, try playing at 1920x1080 and turn all the graphics qualities down to near their lowest just to see if it solves the spikes. If it does it is likely a problem with the amount of video card ram, a driver issue, or a certain graphics setting that your cards don't like.

For me I found the ssao/hbao (I think that is what it is called) caused quite a bit of visual jumping around that wasn't showing up in FRAPS (FPS), but was annoying me. Turning that off solved it for me (on my gtx 460)

If neither of these seem to be the case then try different drivers, or remove one card (it could be a problem with the SLI drivers).
