Is it normal for a graphics card to stutter?

I have a GigaByte 7970 GHz card and in games like battlefield 4 dirt 3 Need for speed battlefield 3, The screen freezes for a second every few minutes this is something that only happened recently. Does anyone know a fix for this issue? Also i have taken a screen shot of MSI afterburner during a intense match of Battlefield 4 and it froze for a second.


No i did not have any Background processes and i have the latest drivers.

Update 2:

I also tested the monitor.

    Could it be something to be with the monitor? Or the video out cables?

    Update all drivers, then try it again, also, make sure you don't have to many background processes running while you play, so use task manager to see what is taking up the most processing power.
