Windows 7: Horrible mouse lag/stuttering full screen games

Horrible mouse lag/stuttering full screen games

Hey there, new to the forums and hoping for a hand

I am experiencing mouse lag/stuttering in a few games recently, however this only occurs when looking around in a game. The two games that currently do this, are Borderlands 2 and BRINK, however I believe more do which I have not found. I know this does not occur in Skyrim and also Protype 2.

The does not occur when "aiming down the sights" in these games, only when looking around normally.

I have all drivers updated, tried different mouses, mouse acceleration, mouse smoothing, v-syncs, dropping all graphics to low, looking around for other issues, but nothing seems to be quite the same.

I'm using a GTX 670 with a Razer Naga, complete specs in my profile.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Make sure you have v-sync turned on,that usually fixes mouse lag.

I have tried with and without V-Sync, in-game and using the Nvidia control panel, and it only seems marginally better with it turned off. It makes the jumps from where you're looking smaller, but it still occurs.

Edit: Turning triple buffering on alongside thew V-Sync in the control panels, makes slight improvements, but it still occurs and sometimes makes the games unplayable still. Could it be because of a custom cursor, as this also happens when moving the mouse around in menus? If so how could I fix this?

Edit edit: It appears to be a problem with having surround using 2 DVI and 1 HDMI, when I disable the surround it works perfectly, all 3 monitors are exactly the same. Is there anyway to solve this?
