I come to you out of desperation, I cant figure out whats causing this!
Almost every game I run, from low end (minecraft) to high end (blops, BF3), has this hanging stutter every half second or so. I thought my GPU was underpowered, but even after purchasing a new one today the stutter is still there. The only difference is the action between the stutters looks smoother now. Its probably something obvious, here are my specs:
3gb ddr2 memory
AMD Phenom II x2 555 @ 3.20ghz
the old card I was using was an Nvidia 9600gt Oc2
And the new card I bought today is a GTX 560
Power supply is 500w edit:
nzxt pp 500
This is a video of BF3 showing the stutter
If you need any more info please let me know!
