I must be doing something wrong. All anybody every says is update drivers / switch out parts
Durr, I've done that.
I had my system (fx 8350 / 7970ge / 8gb ram / Win7) from april to november/decemeber last year before it started micro stuttering (I believe I'm using the right term), every single frame is at a different speed of the very next frame etc.
I sold that 8350 on ebay and got good feedback .___.
Now there's an 8320 attached to a sabbertooth board and a 7970 ge sitting around in some box somewhere in my house collecting dust.
Many times it makes a 'stair' type pattern and most of the time it'll shoot a frame up to 100-1000ms 5-10 times in a minute.
I must be doing something wrong.
Tried new drivers/old drivers/beta drivers
Tried Intel vs AMD
Tried Win 8 vs Win 7
I've switched out every part, reinstalled everything (multiple times)
Even tried building a whole new system
(and for whatever reason I can't get into the bios of this motherboard after
setting it up/updating, and really old games crash on it/same stutter problem)
Even tried testing my GF's laptop and got the same thing (f'in wat?)
About to buy a pre-built cause of this but I feel like I'm going to touch it and it'll do the same
