Did you format and re-install the OS? I had the same mini-stutters in GRiD in certain tracks and one or two more games when I switched from an 8800GTS to a 4870. The framerates had increased greatly in all the games but the mini-stutters annoyed me to no end. A quick format and reinstallation of the OS made a world of difference, I would highly recommend that if you haven't already done it.

Depsite what people say 512mg vram just doesnt cut it. Even the 1GB 4870 reviews showed smoother gameplay due to this. ATI can't rely on bandwidth alone, you need more than 512MB vram.

484 is cutting it close, not 100% sure about this, but is 484 used by the game only? or by total OS usage? doesn't windows also keep the desktop display loaded in vram all the time?

and about reinstall OS, before you try that, i would create system back-up. there is a good chance nothing really will change. in that case I personally would preffer to restore the back up, instead of reinstall all programs/games and getting the windows to the state that i like.
