Have you tried turning on Triple Buffering in the Nvidia Control Panel in the Call of Duty 4 Profile?

Is cod4 the only game this happens with?

It could also be a cpu related problem; if something is stealing focus from the cpu then your game will chop a lot.

Well, I know that in CoD4, the lag from the server you are playing on will sometimes feel like a hitch or pause in the game, but its really just lag from the server. Play some SP CoD4 and see if it is still happening.

Edit: D'oh, I didn't read your whole post. I guess it isn't the servers.

Can you turn up the refresh rate on your monitor using the Nvidia Control Panel? I know mine defaults to 60, but I can turn it up to 75. Don't know if that will help but it might be worth trying.

Also, does the choppiness happen immediately or does it chop after a few minutes of gameplay?
