QUOTE Utility to set PCI Latency and possibly prevent game stutter or improve FPS

This tweak is an important one, and one well worth checking into. Apparently, newer high-end video cards hog PCI latency for no known reason. This makes other components wait for access and causes stutters and thus lower frame rates. If you adjust the latency this might benefit you, users are reporting big improvements.

You can download this small utility program that allows you set your PCI latency. Adjust the PCI latency from for example 248 to 64, and there's a very good chance of stutter free performance & sound.

I was reading through the forum posts on G3D, and no one showed any adverse results (although some showed no improvement), so it has my nod.

Why do you need this utility? You can change PCI latency in 99% of the bioses I've seen.
