When you switch like that it puts less pressure on your RAM.

Make sure that you also have nothing/no other programs running in the background when gaming.

If overclocked, then try stock speeds or lowering the graphic settings.

Usually, if something like that should happen, in order till the problem is solved, I would recognize the capabilities of my video card and find the sweet spot for in game video settings, put my overclocks CPU/video/RAM on stock, look at components and see if they are overheating, I would update my video drivers, mobo chipset drivers, test my RAM individually or using Memtest86 and lastly update my Bios.

I think I may have fixed it, I just played Metro 2033 on Very High settings in Dx 11 settings and it didnt stutter once.

I went to device manager and looked at my audio drivers cause that was my next guess after video card problems, and apparently I still had drivers from 2009 on my audio device. so I went to MSI.com and downloaded the latest release which was from like last month. so for now this works

Glad that worked out for you. I'll need to remember, driver issues can include audio drivers.
