I don't think the problem would have to do with the motherboard but if it is it can only be because either your PCI-E ports aren't set at 16x or aren't running at 100 Mhz in your BIOS.
Otherwise, 11933 isn't a bad score as such for a stock 8800GT and the stutters might be loading stutters (I'm guessing here). Which games specifically?
