I have a couple questions because I know little to nothing about GPU's
The is what GPU-Z is telling me after playing starcraft 2 for a couple hours with almost all of the settings on high.
http://gpuz.techpowerup.com/11/02/01/ffz
http://gpuz.techpowerup.com/11/02/01/b2n

-The core's max, minimum, and average clocking is 500.00MHz (normal right?)
-The GPU Memory clock's max, min, and avg are all 799.2MHz (normal right?)
-The GPU Shader clock's max, min, and avg are all 1250.0MHz (normal right?)
-I know for a fact that the temperature is fine...
-The VDDC's max, min, and avg are all 0.9500V (normal right?)

Here's what I don't understand...
-For memory used it's maximum is 87mb, minimum is 82mb, and average is 86mb.(In the second link it said the memory size is 1024 mb!)
-For GPU load, memory controller load, and Video engine load THE MAX MIN AND AVG ARE ALL 0%(It doesn't make sense to me.....)

I haven't experienced any thing like a slow fps in game and everything seems to be running smoothly. I just checked and I have the latest drivers. Is this normal? Is there something wrong with GPU-z not showing things because it's incompatible or something?
Thanks in advance guys, any and all help is greatly appreciated.

what GPU is it? I assume your talking about graphics cards right? well Most graphics cards adjust their frequency for power conservation, when idling they will run at a low speed, when theyre being used they throttle up to handle the load-if your not experiencing any performance problems then I wouldnt worry to much about it.

Yeah, I read a couple threads that turned up from google searches. It seems the GPU-Z just isn't compatable with certain drivers.
Thanks man :D
