Default Choppy, stuttery gameplay.

When playing games I get stuttering frames and it's super choppy. Does anyone know what could cause this? People warned me about my e6400 "bottlenecking" my 8800GTX, but I didn't really know what that meant, could that be what's going on?

What do you mean by that? Do you mean frames always changing? Do you have V-Sync always enabled?

Thanks, and I don't know what V-Sync is or how to enable it. It's kinda like playing at a horrible fps, but it's a very high fps. Like it's not a smooth continuous run or turn.

Do you mean your getting good fps but every once in a while it kind of pauses for a few seconds? Or it runs good fps then drastically drops for a little bit?

My computer likes to the pausing thing with FEAR.
