  1. Hi all,

    Near enough every game I play which has ingame movies (Gears of war etc), stutters. When playing movie files through Windows Media, they're fine but in-game movies tend to stutter along, then play normally for a bit, then stutter which can really get on my nerves.

    I've had this problem with my previous PC and now it seems I'm having the same problem with this PC. Games etc all run fine.

    Anyone else have this or know what to do to sort it out?

    Memory is inadequate in some way, or your optical drive is going bad?

    Which "other games?" Gears of War is pretty new and is known for stuttering, so what other games have had problems?
