OKay guys here are my system specs:

Intel Core i7 860 2.8 GHZ Quad Core.
EVGA P55 LE Motherboard
6GB Corsair Dominator Ram (8-8-8-24) timings
Gigabyte Superclocked GTX 470
700 WATT Toughpower Cable Management power supply

I am getting CONSTANT EVERY SECOND stuttering and jerking in ALL MY GAMES. I play. The only game I play that doesn't stutter nearly as much is Team Fortress 2. But it's enough to get me killed in many places, because of the damn jerking.

I have tried the following things:

1. Made sure my BIOS was not overclocked, everything is set on default.
2. The timings are set correctly in the bios, so is the voltage.
3. I have upgraded to the latest bios.
4. I have tired OLD DRIVERS, NEW DRIVERS for my video card,.
5. This was also a COMPLETELY FRESH INSTALLATION of Windows 64 bit.
6. Tried only using 4GB of ram instead of 6GB.

I am so angry right now because I am ready to f---king chuck my computer out the damn window I spend over 1100 dollars upgrading my computer. I AM PISSED PISSED PISSED.

SOMEONE please help me, this is MAKING NO SENSE.

Here is to give you an idea:

I can put the quality on ultra crappy and it STILL STUTTERS. THAT makes no sense.

I would assume the 700W PSU should suffice. I have run mine on less;)

Have you thought of maybe a directX update or something? Just seems odd that every game is doing it.

potentially it's a monitor/cabling issue then? Is V-sync enabled in the games?

You mentioned you upgraded.

Did you upgrade the video card? Do you have the old video card? IF so install the old video card and see if games still stutter with crap settings.

You need to start trouble shooting. IF it is a fresh install of windows then it is probably a hardware issue.

Any odd noises coming from the Hard Drive?
Have a different power supply, even lower wattage to test with?

Well then do you have an older PCIe video card to test with?

Wow I found a very similar thread on a different forum. ALmost exactly the same issues and hardware as you.

Try running your games at 1024x768 resolution and let us know the results.

Did you update directx? Please stop double/triple posting too, it leads to confusion. Use the "Edit" button.

Is ther ANY chance it's my power supply.
I highly doubt it!
I am leaning towards your harddrive not having enough umph! and the stuttering coming to play from the harddrive not delivering the data fast enough.

Yes I installed all my windows updates.

I am downloading the SDK package you sent me, which will take forever.

I am also going to try, re installing windows on a DIFFERENT hard drive I have, and installing the game on that said hard drive. To test.

so is everyone leaning toward the hd at this point?

I am going to run the integrity test on the hard drives with the program suggested, what am I looking out for, or in other words. When Ii get the results what do I need to look at,

BEcausse i think you guys are right, everytime the jerking happens what hard drive reads VERY HARD. The light gets very bright. I put my ear to it and I can hear it as well reading very hard.

I am not home i am my computer i built into my car went out to eat with wife. But I have three hard drives,

one is a 1.5tb one is a 1tb and one is a 250GB. So... I dont know what program it was but i think it was an evga program told me my hard drive health was at 60 percent for my big guys and they are only a few months old. The 250GB is in 92 percent condition. and it's 3 years old. But it's a western digital, the other two are seagates. So, but i am going to run the integrity check when I get home.

I think it at this point its the HD. I had the same stuttering issues with my 7950gx2. When I had my older setup (amd 4600+ with 2gb of ddr1 ram kingston, same power supply same hds) So the only things that havent changed are the HDs and the Power supply.

That's the way you should have worded your first post... LOL

So it is one of those 2 components. Probably the HD. However micro-stutter can be caused by lack of power.
