Default I've tried EVERYTHING !

Ok here we go.. I decided to build a gaming rig.

Specs are as follows

Antec DF-85 Case
i5 2500K @ 4.3ghz
G.Skill Ares 1866 Ram 16GB
750w Antec Gamer PSU
Had 2 6950's in crossfire originally Now with GTX 660ti PE
Sandisk 128gb SSD
WD 1TB HDD
Windows 7 Home Premium

Ok so I spend all this money putting this thing together. I was a big gamer on Xbox and decided to try PC out.
It's been nothing but trouble so far trying to get the games to play right.

First I tried BF3 Microstutter from hell.. Great FPS just wanted to stutter when you moved your character.
So I read crossfire cards can cause this and are notororious for Microstutter. I disabled the crossfire still the same old thing. So I decided to buy a new mouse I had the Cooler Master Xornet. So I wanted to try that before I got a new GPU. I ordered a Razer abyssus same stutter... So today I got a Msi GTX 660ti PE. Hoping this would solve my problem. Low and behold I still have the microstutter.

I've upgraded all new drivers, Tried 2 different keyboard/mice, Tried Lucid MVP, Tried adaptive V sync.

I don't know anything else I can do, I've tried this on BF3, COD MW3, and Ghost Recon Future Soldier.

Please help !

First thing to try is clocking it normally and see if the problem goes away. BF3 is a fairly video resource heavy game and if you have everythign turned up I'm not sure 6950's or 660ti is going to suffice. Try turning soem of the settings down adn see if the stutter goes away.

Thanks for the reply..

I've tried turning the settings down to minimal and still get the stutter.
Tried running everything at regular clock speeds..

Monitor specs? That's pretty much the only thing left to check in terms of hardware.

You need to get the latest drivers from nvidia before anything. Seems you are using very dated drivers or not giving the proper info. I what does dxdiag say for drivers?

I'd suggest downloading the latest drivers as well, and then trying it with V-Sync disabled as that has been a fairly common problem.

is this while playing on or off line? I know that I have played all of those games off line without any stutters ( at least as far as I remember) but I have heard of people playing online and getting Lag stutter.

I've just tried playing in offline mode to see if I would be able to play in multiplayer.
