Periods of Distorted/Shaky Video During Game Play

Hey guys, I just got finished with building my new gaming rig. Everything works great, movies and music play perfect. However, currently I have only three games installed on my computer: Crysis, H.A.W.K.S and Prototype. Everytime that I play these games, there is always some slight video distortion/shakyness as the "camera" moves left and right and up and down in all of the games. Seeing that these games are are not really related, I am assuming that this a problem with my system and whatever game I install, this will happen. I am using the same nvidia gtx 260's in SLI that was in my former rig, and I have never experienced this before while in the old rig. I just recenlty replaced the motherboard, processor and ram. Here are my specs.
-MSI NF980-G65 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

  1. Bump.

    I'm having a similar problem as well. I run a GTX 580 and on some games (Deus Ex and Bulletstorm) when I move the mouse it gets all shakey and weird.

    The thing is, it's not all games. I've run Far Cry 2, Crysis with Lvl 6 CCC graphics, and CoP Complete and don't have the same issue? Anyone have any sort of idea?
  2. sounds like your experiencing stuttering, which is common in dual graphics card setups. You can try enabling vsync and forcing tripplebuffering on, that should help. Im also wondering what cpu/motherboard you upgraded from?
