EVGA nex750b PSU
I recently got a 290x but I am experiencing microstutter when playing Battlefield 4,
even with Vsync I still get it slightly to the point I just can't play it anymore..
I have used a 980ti for the last year without any issues at all, so I am assuming
my PSU isn't stable when under full AMD load but I have spoke to someone with basically
the same system and he said he doesn't have the same problem.
I hear this PSU is average, any advice before I buy another PSU
I underclocked the the card to see if that would sort the problem but it precised

I am building a new pc for my son, just gathering parts so haven't actually gave up my TI LOL
I'm getting 100-145 frames on ultra, FSAA isn't an issue
FSAA can cause microstuttering though, give it a shot :P
Vsync is really required for older games and emulators -- things which are keyed to perform actions using the frame change as a sort of rudimentary system clock. Without vysnc older games would screen tear like no one's business trying to display more frames per second than they were ever scripted to.
If disabling vsync doesn't do it for you, try installing AMD's Gaming Evolved software (yes, I recognize that it is largely crap -- but it does a pretty good job of assessing your hardware and making game setting recommendations off of those. I'd recommend trying out their "optimization" and then customizing it, ONE SETTING AT A TIME, until you get your screen tearing back).
I think he had VSync off originally :P
Ok so to be clear I have tried every variation of settings to eliminate but nothing
worked at all. I had a brain storm and searched google for 'signs gpu is underpowered'
and i found that a common factor was to notice shadows like artifacts and I found them
last night on BF4
I always use Vsync otherwise i get screen tear so that isn't a factor either

I have done that, it didn't make a difference
I leave it at around 70% and it keeps the temperatures just below 80 which is reasonable
for a AMD reference card I think

If that doesn't work, then RMA!
Yes I unplugged everything and cleaned them out
It's really weird because I get high frames without vsync 100+ with constant stutter
but with vsync on it's better but it drop below 60 all the time and gives me lag
I have to turn all monitoring software off or the lag is even worse
