I have a custom built PC (not by me) with an I5-3570K, 16GB ram and a GTX 780. However, in games like Batman Arkham Origins or GTA 4 or COD Ghosts, I can max out the graphics but I still get slight stutter in some areas. Is this because my GPU is bad or is it because of the CPU?
All console ports stream textures while the game runs, so some stuttering is to be expected. Since for some reason we still can't build a computer that can wait on IO requests without hanging the entire system.
