wow.
some people have it, some people don't.

is this an example of a moderate case of MS?

I notice tearing when vsync is not on. That really annoys me which is why I always turn vsync on. Does micro-stuttering look like hard drive lag?

Do you know anyone with a multi gpu set up?
+1 This is going to be your best bet in order to gauge your own personal tolerance. Nothing speaks volumes compared to real-life experiences.

In the past, I believed a lot of the comments people have said over the years across many different forums, which prevented me from trying multi-GPU's in the first place. A little over a year ago, I decided to just give it a shot with two 1GB HD4850's I found on clearance at Best Buy. And why not for such a cheap price? Once installed, I was amazed at the difference in performance! Running two cards allowed me to maintain a silky smooth 60 fps in Battlefield: Bad Company 2, while running only a single card nearly halved my framerates (30's-40's) at the same graphics settings on my 1920x1200 display. I was looking at effectively HD5850 performance for about half the cost at the time!

Ever since then, I have not looked back with multi-GPU gaming.

Yeah I would say that's a moderate case. Here's an old video that illustrates a very bad case with the 9800GX2 compared to other high-end single GPU's at the time. Notice how the 9800GX2 may hold higher average fps, it is also the least smooth out of all the other cards. Keep in mind, though, that since then hardware, games, and drivers have come a long way in mitigating this issue.
