I'm having an odd stuttering problem with two select games, NBA 2K12 and FIFA 12. The games will run smooth from the beginning and about 50-60% through the game they'll stutter for about 3 minutes and go back to running smooth again. Nothing drastic but noticeable and annoying compared to the smooth gameplay before the stutter problem.

I've tried tweaking settings, gave d3doverrider a try, ran all graphical settings from the Nvidia control panel instead of the games themselves and it still happens. Gave MSI's turbo mode a try and still the same issues.

These games aren't even that demanding as I run games like Mass Effect 3, SWTOR in 1080p, maxed and no issues like this arise. I thought maybe my antivirus is causing some issue but I put it in silent mode and it still happens and I'm slowly running out of ideas.

Any tips or advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Here are the system specs:


Intel Core i7 - 2670QM(2.20GHz)- 6MB L3 Cache
GTX 570M

Could the CPU be responsible for this?

have you tried turning vsync on

Sports games are a mess without vsync turned on; horrible screen tearing. I was hoping d3d would fix any issues but it hasn't.
