I am not sure if anyone will be able to help me but I have no other options... I've tried everywhere and everything. This is probably my last post about this problem since no one seems to know what the issue that I'm experiencing is, but here I go... This is probably gonna be a long post so if you guys can read everything I really do appreciate it.
I am really stressed right now since I'm battling this problem for about 2 months since I got this new computer. The problem is that my games simply do not run smoothly. The best way I can describe it is that when I am in game, moving the camera around, be it on an FPS or RTS game as it affects them all, causes this effect to be produced which is stuttering. Basically when I move my mouse around the gameplay feels really choppy/jumpy like I was playing with 40-50 FPS. I could have 60 fps, or 250, it makes no difference the problem is still there. The video does this thing where it's like - "smooth, skip, smooth, skip, smooth, skip" consistently. It skips at the same rate of time every time (once every half a second or so).
Naturally my first actions were the usual. I re-downloaded my graphics drivers, and did a clean install of windows. However this did not make a difference. I will mention that V-sync doe alleviate the problem. The other thing to note is that if I am in a small area or room on a game and there is not much to render, the problem is also greatly minimized then. I thought that the problem was appearing because I have only 1 stick of 8 GB of RAM so I created another thread on this forum and people assured me the problem is not RAM. I don't know if this contributes to the problem but when I have V-Sync disabled I see white (almost transparent) lines across my monitor which are subtle but I can still notice them. I see them more if there is a lot of stuff happening on the screen. So a few days after I got my computer I decided to monitor my hardware during gameplay. So I downloaded a simple non demanding FPS shooter called Warface and an MMORPG called Runescape 3. The reason I went with Warface and Runescape is because my computer is powerful enough to easily max out the graphics on this games (The results of the tests are below).
Due to the large amount of time spent without an enjoyable gaming experience, and money poured in with no return I am reaching the end of my fuse. I came to the PC with high hopes, but have had a truly miserable experience, and so this post is my last call for help.
I would be immeasurably grateful if someone could help me in this time of need, and give me any advice you can, all of it will be appreciated. Thank you so much for reading all of this. If you need any additional information please do not hesitate to ask.

UPDATE: I also forgot to mention that weird sounds are coming out of my graphics card which is probably coil whining. I don't know if coil whining can cause the issue that I'm having right now but still its worth mentioning.
