Games are playing choppy

Specs: Windows 7
I recently built my own desktop computer from scratch and have fun into a few problems with some recent games; Bulletstorm, The Last Remnant, and a few others i can't remember. These game all ran on my Laptop fairly well.(besides the fact that the hardware met above minimum or just below recommended) They should run flawlessly on my new system but they don't. During gameplay the screen gets all choppy and and seems to skip frames. So whats the issue? How do i fix this.

Laptop specs:
Windows Vista Home Premium
Intel Core 2 Duo T9400@2.53GHz
4094MB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT

Desktop specs:
Windows 7 Professional
Intel Core i7 960@3.2GHz
12288MB Ram (12 GB Cosair 2000MHZ)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 sli

Well... I've tried many solutions and none have help:

- I opened the BaseEngine.ini and changed some of the values in it from false to true and not thing really happened.
- I updated my graphics card drivers to the most recent version from the official NVIDIA Website and no change in game play.
- I fiddled and changed the graphic setting, including V sync, and no real change. except for Frame rates tend to stay higher on lower settings and different resolutions.

I have found through the use of a program called Fraps that i can monitor the Frame rate in real-time while the game is playing. By doing this I've knoticed that everytime the game chopped up and stalls, the frame rate drops basically to zero and skips a few frames. and it continue does this at different parts of the game, especially the cinematic.
All in all, so far, there are no resolves to the problem. It is still present and a real pain. Is there anythings else i can do?

Did you scan for infections? Have you monitored the CPU and/or memory usage? You may have some garbage program running in the background that's hogging all the resources.
