Lol yeah well you get less tearing with Vsync but still its smoother at higher FPS, I'm sure other would agree. I notice a difference between 125 and 250 and you shouldnt be able to tell but I can.

Just because you have an I7 at stock speeds does not mean you are avoiding Bottlenecking. From my own personal experience 4ghz is a pretty sweet spot for diminishing bottleneck with this generation GPU(especially OCed).

Older operating systems do not support HPET and can only use older timing facilities, such as the programmable interval timer or the real-time clock.

i don't really think the cpu can be bottlenecking except maybe if it's a unstable overclock. i notice stutters on my rig ocasionally and they seem to be random and never really bothered me. my best bet would be a faulty card or a bad driver, did you clean the drivers when you upgraded?, does every game stutter more usual than normal with your card? and by the way, frames per seconds have nothing to do with stutter i don't think.
