    It just seems that over the past month or so .. I can't even watch a YouTube video, a one that's in HQ (not HD) without the video stuttering and skipping about once ever 15-20 seconds. Why is this?

    I had something similar with my stock 2.4 Alu MB. There would be white flashes in the video. I checked the uptime for my MB was around 9 days. So I finally decided to shut it off and give it a rest for about an hour. After I turned it back on everything was smooth and perfect.

    You might want to give that a try, I don't know if our problems are similar.
