    Guys,

    Specs are in sig,

    I have a few movies on my system in the matroska format (.mkv)

    Each play fine whilst in windowed mode, but as soon a I full screen them I experience some choppyness, I am not sure how to describle it, it's like frame stutter. It is pretty much constant, but only slight, still extremely annoying though!

    I have VSYNC forced on in the nvidia control panel.

    Surely my CPU should be able to handle 1080p?

    My 9800GTX+ is overclocked to 800/1200, I've tried all sorts of CPU priority setings.

    I am running Windows 7, during playback my CPU utilization is around 60-70%

    Any idea's?

    Have you tried any other media players, to check if the problem is just vlc ?

    Could you reccomend a good alternative? I have mainly stuck to VLC because of how many formats it supports.
