These were well documented issues. I had some initial stuttering and crashing problems on an Nvidia card; however, the right combination of settings made them go away. I remember I had to use a third-party Nvidia driver controller program (I think it was RivaTuner) in conjunction with the Nvidia control panel. Eventually I was able to get rid of all stuttering and use v-sync while maxing all settings. I enjoyed the game immensely after that point. The initial stuttering was very inhibiting to the experience.

From what I remember, the biggest change came from locking the refresh rate at 59Hz in RivaTuner. That basically got rid of the stuttering. Then, I forced vsync in the Nvidia control panel and set pre-rendered frames to 1. That's off the top of my head anyways.
For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
