Is it my GPU or is it the game?

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?

A stutter, as in when it's loading?


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.

I see stuttering issues more when having in game v-sync on. Try turning it off and check for better results.

For GTA4, the stutter happens when I load and then come out of a safehouse and get on a bike or in a car.

Batman Arkham Origins: It happens mainly when entering a new room or before a cinematic.

COD Ghosts: Slight stutter during playing but not often. This one I have to experiment with more.

Someone mentioned for Batman it could be the Unreal engine which is causing the stutter.

Will give V-Sync off a try.

So all three games are deemed console ports?

Do any native PC games stutter?
Like say, X3, or x-rebirth, warband, civilization? any of those?

I have not tried any of the native games you mentioned. I am mainly into FPS or action games. But I will try testing with a non-console port to see how it goes.

I'm just guessing though, but I know unreal3 stutters like crazy when scenes load.
