Ya'know I did hear something about Nvidia sacrifricing frametimes, for higher frames(or something like that) in their newer drivers. I am currently on 313.96. Would you recommend me rolling back to a specific set? Also now that I think of it, it really depends on the game that I notice the stutter with lower framerates. Crysis 3 beta for example, felt leagues better even when I was at 40 fps, when compared to any other game I would play at the same framerate.
Also, an occurence that always perplexed me, was that my laptop with an HD 4650m GPU would feel smoother at lower frames in comparison to my desktop. Even at 30-35 fps, it wouldn't be stuttery, it would just be "slower", less fluid as you've said. So I guess AMD has it right with their drivers while Nvidia...I don't know what they're doing..

I honestly don't know what else I could call it. It really does feel/look like a very obvious stutter/jitter. Even some games when I'm above 60 it appears(but doesn't feel) to have a jitter, but I've just assumed it's the tearing I would be getting that gives off that impression.
If you have Far Cry 3, try setting your vsync to 2 frames so it caps you at 30 and tell me how that feels to you. It looks/feels absolutely horrid to me. I'd doubt it looks/feels the same on the console version of Far Cry 3 or we would've heard how it's a jittery mess on there.Edited by venomblade - 2/16/13 at 8:26am
