I just recently purchased an MSI Geforce GTX 770 to be my discreet graphics card in my current system. I did not previously have a graphics card I was using the AMD A-10 6800k apu as my gpu. I have noticed a great increase in preformance in games but I am getting microstuttering. I didnt know if there are any known bottlenecking issues between the card and the apu and if so is there a way to fix it.(Disabling the onboard graphics or integrated graphics maybe) My full system will be shown below. Any help would be great. Thanks
Motherboard: Asus A88X Pro
Cpu/Apu: Amd A-10 6800k
Memory: 8gb Gskill ram
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1tb 7200rpm
Psu: corsair cx600

You can try to disable the integrated graphics but I think your problem is that you are using a high end gpu with a weak APU.

So I guess my next question is should I downgrade my gpu to an AMD gpu? Or should I upgrade my system to intel???

Upgrading your system to Intel will mean buying a new mobo and Intel i5 processor to be able to handle the GTX 770. That is worth if you want to play at 1080p or higher with ultra or maxed out settings, and of course if you can afford it. Just because you are going with an AMD card doesn't mean you are downgrading your system! There are also less powerful nVidia GPUs than the one you currently have. Try to overclock your APU if possible although i don't think it will make much a difference.

i dont think it because of the weak procy. yes it would bottleneck your new gpu but not by much and not cause micro stutterings. bottlenecking is not being able to fully utilize your gpu's strength. it would cause a lower frame rate compared by having a strong cpu paired with your new gpu, but not microstutterings

So is overclocking my gpu going to solve my problem?? Will I be able to utilize the full power of my gpu??

NO, I meant you can try overclocking your APU to try to make it catch up to your GPU. If the stuttering problem decreases be overclocking your APU then here is your problem. BTW did you try to disable the integrated graphics?
