Stuttering when accessing HDD makes me question how much system memory do you have? I don't have any stuttering with 2GB ram. Min is 1GB, recommended is 2GB. But the fact you only notice it with the 8600GT not the X1950 pro, kinda throws that thought out. You could also defrag your hard drive and see if it helps reduce the stutter time.
