Choppy framerate at 60fps?

Hi, so I recently got a new gaming rig. It's not the best but it should perform well. I've been having a problem where it seems like the game is choppy when my character is moving (the background is kind of "vibrating"). Now it says my FPS is at 57-60 at all times. It's playable but annoying and I'd really like it solved.

My monitor does support 60 htz and I'm using a DVI. Sorry about my english and if you can help me please do.

More about : choppy framerate 60fps

>ran software
what software? most of them are viruses...

Anyways, its called microstutter. Run a fraps test and check the time between frames. some will take longer then others, anything over 40ms is persevable as stutter

I tried Device Doctor. I always research before I download something, people said it was safe and device doctor said the important things were updated.

hmm, I think it might be microstutter. I'm getting something like this person is in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMPFfjupeq8) except not that extreme. It's noticeable but not that extreme.

Is there a way to check? I'm guessing 2ms or 5ms?

check the % of GPU load. if its maxed thats why.
also, try to drop your settings way down to see if that helps at all. if it does its a GPU issue, if not its a CPU issue.

    I found some time to do that, but I'm kind of a beginner at this. Where would I find that 13.3 BETA driver? I've been googling for 15 minutes and can't find it. I'm only finding the 13.2 drivers.

    Also would I have to uninstall my drivers right now to download that new driver?
    thanks and again sorry for the stupid questions.
