Hi

As many others i have been suffering stutters while playing fps games, the frames per second stay high but when new area's in the map are loaded i get short stutters which really make the game not fun to play. I've read the following thread (http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-108893_25_100....) but i dont really get what the solution is for this issue. I wonder if a complete reset of my system to factory settings would help, since i have a hp pavillion desktop im sure there is a way to get it back how you first got it.

My systemspecs are

i7 870
7gig ram ddr3 1033mhz dualchan
7200rpm seagate hdd
550w psu
asus hd 6750

Also, ive tried with a different gpu so im sure its not my videocard, i have tried to defrag multiple times with no results. Maybe its a problem with my motherboard or chipsetdrivers but i dont know how to fix that either since im new at this. I didnt do any overclocks and have good temps in my case.

Any help would be much appriciated

Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

There are different types of the generic 'stutter.' Examples there are stutter's cause my mini saves/loads e.g. BF3 and stutter's caused by the GPU and rendering e.g. Skyrim.

In the case of 'mini saves/loads' you'll still have them with an SSD -- I do. However, 'GPU and rendering' often the fix is: 1. OC the GPU slightly using MSI Afterburner, 2. Newer GPU drivers, 3. Game settings adjustments, or Game patches.

Q - What form of stuttering?
Q - What game(s)?

Thanks for the reply but it's not my gpu since i've upgraded to the hd6750 and i had the issue also with my previous one, my cpu activity is normal. I have the stutters in battlefield bad company 2 and in battlefield 3, so putting those games on a ssd would not really stop the stuttering? The stutter only happens when i move on in the map, when i sit in the same spot everything is smooth but when i move/walk further in the map it stutters. Since i did not have this problem when i bought my pc i wonder if a compleet reboot of my system would help.

Thanks for the help :)

I don't remember Battlefield Bad Company 2 having the stutter's caused my mini saves/loads, but BF3 YEP. I guess a RAM Drive might eliminate them but again even on an SSD you'll have 'that' problem.

YEP they're annoying as hell. They need to fix that problem.

Q - In the campaign the tank battle after the last 'update' (crappy one) do you have firing issues? My observations are I went from no problems to buggy campaigns.

So a complete reset doesnt help? Think im gonna try it since i didnt have the stutters until recent. I havent played the campaign so i dont really know that.
And what's a ram drive? :p 
Im really hoping i can fix this issue :(

If you're constantly getting stutters and playing Multiplayer then this could be a latency issue with your NIC and/or ISP. The problem is determining if the Game Server is the source -- i.e. Pinging the server's IP address. You can try to Uninstall your NIC driver in the Device Manager and reboot, also updating the NIC driver, or if you AV (anti-virus) has a Gaming/Silent Mode try that and/or modifying your Firewall.

You can try http://speedtest.net/ or http://pingtest.net/ (requires JAVA for packet test)

Q - What MOBO?

A RAM Drive takes a portion of you RAM and creates a 'Logical Drive' but you can save & load the data with proper shutdown & startup. However, you'd need more RAM i.e. 16GB+.

Here's my RamDisk 11 performance; $80 http://www.superspeed.com/desktop/ramdisk.php/

its no internet issue for sure, my ping on bc2 is allways lower than 100 ingame, and other internetapps run perfect.
my mobo=MS-7613 (Iona-GL8E)

If you didn't have the issue before then use System Restore and select a point prior to the problem.

Ive tried multiple things now, reinstalled windows etc so i start to think its an internet issue, ive done speedtest (http://www.speedtest.net/result/2155939995.png) i know its not fast but i dont get how this can give me stutters, it would give me lag and not the little stutter every few seconds i think. Can you explain to me if it's an internet issue and how to solve it since i cant affort a ramdisk and i don't really know that much about internetconfiguration for gaming etc

Thanks :)
