Micro Stuttering at low CPU and GPU load

I have pretty bad microstuttering visible in all of my 3D games. I cant even play Borderlands 2 without it looking choppy, but this happens in BF4, D3, and games like that. I have replaced almost everything in an attempt to fix this problem but nothing is working. I tried playing with the Nvidia Control Panel and it didnt help at all.

FX 6100 (OC 4.2) load temp 50c
GTX 660 DCU2 OC edition
ST2000DL003 HDD
CX 430

This problem has been happening before when I had a gts 450 so PSU power isnt the issue.
The only things I haven't replaced are the CPU and PSU. I got a good cooler for my CPU so I could overclock it up to 4.2 but that has barely helped in a few games. Could a year old PSU cause micro stuttering at low loads?

Have you tried a clean driver reinstall?

I've done a fresh windows install 3 times because of getting a SSD and Windows 8
