recently i've noticed my computer will randomly studder for about one or two seconds at a time. usually this happens while listening to music or playing a game. I built the computer about a year ago and i've never had any problems with it until now. the studdering happened when i added an 8800gts to my computer a few weeks ago, i think it may be a driver issue?

btw my specs

amd 3700+
evga 8800gts 320mb
2 gigs kingston ram
biostart tforce4 sli mobo
250gb seagate hd

I wonder if perhaps the 8800gts performs best with DirectX10 -- which as you know is not available for windows XP (I'm assuming you're running XP - you omitted this detail from your specs as though it wasn't important enough to mention).

yes i'm running xp sorry i forgot to mention that.

i decided to get rid of the drivers i had (152) because i had read quite a lot of negative reviews towards them and i downloaded the 160 beta drivers and now the studdering seems to be gone (knock on wood)

and the 8800 series has no problem runnning in dx9 as i get much better fps from it in dx9 games than i did with my 7800
