GTX 670 I5-3570k microstuttering

Hey guys, I'm running an EVGA gtx 670 ftw 2gb with an i5-3570k and I've recently been having some microstuttering issues. I think on every game I've played within the last two days have had the problem, even when I turn down settings. A week ago I ran Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider, and more recently Titanfall, at consistent 45-60 FPS on max settings. I think far cry 3 I had to turn down a bit. I'm still getting decent fps, but microstuttering and i guess screen "pop ins", like objects appear randomly that were already loaded before all this started happening. It's not running smooth anymore. I turned down far cry 3 to the lowest setting and it still has the problem. V-sync is on and I have the latest driver update. Sometimes the past few weeks my screen would flash just for a little bit or in that section of the game, would my gpu be dying? It's only like a year old, I just bought this pc from a friend a month ago and I really love it, vs consoles, but damn it gets old when shit doesn't go right. I ordered a larger case(better airflow), new psu corsair 860watt platinum, and a noctua nh-d14, since the previous owner only has the stock fans hooked up. Please help asap, I appreciate it.

  1. If you can, monitor your GPU usage and then your CPU. If they aren't freaking out than it must be your GPU. Since you bought it only a year ago than it should still be under warranty. I would contact EVGA for an RMA if possible. If you don't want to do that, revert back to an older driver version. Also, did you do anything like OC or anything like that just before this happened?

  3. Everything is at stock speed. I was running the previous driver, then I noticed the issue, and installed the new driver today, which just came out I think. I'm having difficulty finding a good monitoring app, should I download some benchmark tests and run them?
