Just search L4D + Stutter and you'll see a load of results.

I had that stupid stutter issue with the first 180 series driver, went back to 178.24 to solve it. Some did say turning off multicore rendering in the video advanced settings was supposed to help but not in my case, sorry I don't remember if I was FS or FS without borders, likely FS.

Enaberif what are drivers are you running now to make it work?

I agree - I am still using 178.24 and I recommend using those for now - The 185 series drivers are currently in beta and those run better in some cases and have tweaks for Mirror's Edge and PhysX !

I'm using 178.24 at the moment and I tend to have problems with crashing with Mirror's edge and World in Conflict and it seems to only hav happen around the time the new driver (180.20) had came out, for some strange reason. Well now im installing 180.20.
