XP is still considered to be faster, but not by much these days. As for the stuttering issues, here a few questions:

-What was your old GPU?
-Did you use Driver cleaner after uninstalling the old drivers? (especially if you were using an ATI card previously)

Yes I did my previous card was a 8600GT 512mb and I had no stuttering what so ever does
XP Drivers stutter also or is just nvidia's vista drivers that are so **** and im using the Readyboost function also
