Set the computer in an open space and take the side cover off. Place a household floor fan a foot or so away from the open side and turn it on full speed. Start up the computer and see if it starts stuttering again. If it does solve the problem you need to fix the heat problem inside the case. More fans or cutting a hole in the side cover right over the GPU and installing a fan there could solve the problem. I would download speedfan and check your temps with it. It sits in the taskbar tray near the clock so its easy to check anytime.

If heat is not the problem then its probably the video drivers. It probably not likely to be bad drivers but i would update the drivers to the newest. Be careful when installing new drivers for Nvidia cards. You must uninstall the old drivers in device manager before installing new ones.
