When playing games, whenever I look at a new area, there's a big frame rate drop, or it will even pause for a bit, and then it will go back to normal. This problem didn't seem to happen on my last GTX460 (in the brief time it had) or even on my 8800GTS. I'm running the latest drivers and all that.

Here's a video with examples. At this time it's still processing so the resolution is a little low, but you might still be able to get the idea. YouTube - GTX460 Framerate stutter

I know exactly what you mean.

I'm too suffering from this with my GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 460 1GB OC Edition.

Most noticeably under Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (not as bad as your Starcraft 2 video though ).

I've tried pretty much every single possible solution out there:
  • Every driver set since 258.56 (Beta, Dev, WHQL [on 260.89 WHQL as of right now]).
  • Every possible NVIDIA Control Panel setting + Game(s) Settings configuration
  • Messing round with some BIOS settings (Disabling HPET, C1E, etc)
  • Installing CPU Control (some said that BFBC2 had CPU usage issues under Windows 7)
  • Fresh Windows install

You name it, I've done it.

Seriously dissappointed with NVIDIA to be quite honest, I mean, I've never messed around with so many things just to get a card working right, I now know how much of a solid card my old Radeon HD 5770 was, AMD's drivers are not as bad as people make it out to be.
