Really, I only play BF3, Skyrim, and Minecraft...
Before I sold my cards I tried every driver release up to the 12.3.. so I think it was 4 different drivers that I tried. Skyrim stuttered on every one of them, and the resolution to it was always repeatable. Alt-tab to desktop, alt-tab (twice) back into game. Gone.

Everyone has a different setup, so maybe it's a system configuration issue. You have an expensive monitor I remember you saying so you're probably at a higher res than me. I saw the screen just barely resize at the loading screens to where I could barely make out a border. Then once the new area loaded and after all the textures loaded in is when I'd get the bad stuttering. The screen resizing seemed like it could be what was causing the problem.
