New guy here. So I have been having a slight stutter whenever I play BF3, Far Cry 3, Just Cause 2, Metro 2033 etc. The stuttering occurs if I look around or move. Even on low settings with 80+ FPS I still get this annoying stuttering. It feels like the image struggles to catch up with my movements. I have tried optimizing the graphics and turning off V-sync. I looked on many forums to try and fix it but nothing works. I am thinking it might be a HDD issue, but I am not sure. I tried switching to integrated graphics but the problem persisted. It's not the monitor as I tried different ones but with the same stuttering. The build is fairly new, I built in August in 2012. If someone could help I would greatly appreciate it as this as this is driving me nuts!
