thanks
Guys?

Anything else?

what is the gpu and cpu usage when you experience lag?
also did you tried lowering aa/af? does it fix the issue?

might very well be drivers too

It has to be your drivers go on AMD's forums and ask what drivers will eliminate the stutter.

I am sticking with what I said at first and agree with all others. Your system should be perfectly capable of nearly all games maxed at your resolution. It must be a software/ driver issue. Try latest driver from AMD. If that doesn't work try the newest driver that is available from the brand of your video card (ex...if you have an ASUS card go to the ASUS site and try their driver).

I have a 6850 and I ran into problems after I upgraded to the 11.2 drivers (stutters, freezes, crashes, etc). My problems went away when I uninstalled the ati drivers and then re-installed with the 11.1a hotfix. I've been using the 11.1a ever since. Try that and see if it helps, but make sure to uninstall the currrent drivers first.

I have my 6850 overclocked to 6870 speeds and it plays those games just fine (although with some lag on metro) at 1650x1080, so your 6870 should be just fine for your resolution.
