    I've never had a real stutter problem. My paired GTX460s are fine for me, and give me no trouble at all.
    Intel i7-2600k with an XSPC Raystorm water block, 4x4GB Corsair Dominator, SLi Evga-GTX560Ti-448 FTWs, Asrock Extreme4 Gen3, Crucial M4 256GB SSD, Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB HDD, powered by a Silverstone Strider+ 850 PSU in a Silverstone TJ-07BW case.
    I'm not buying EK GPU blocks ever again. (One GPU killed)

    I've found stutter very noticeable with asymmetric Crossfire; a Radeon 4870 and 4850 produced terrible microstutter that made games less playable than on the 4870 alone.
    It's my PSU in a box!
    Ooo-ooh,
    My PSU in a box, baby!
