One of the worst things you can experience in VR is stuttering because it makes you feel dizzy or you may get motion sickness. You need to prevent this from happening in order to feel comfortable in VR games. This guide will help you solve some of those problems.

We will achieve this by disabling unnecessary background programs and adjust some settings.
Try to do the following:

Step 1. Adjust some settings in SteamVR

Reprojection should be disabled
Bluetooth and Camera also disabled
Disable Performance Heuristics
Find the process “vivelink.exe” and stop (kill) it

Step 2. Close (disable) some external programs

If you have F.lux, disable it
Close all of the unnecessary background programs
Chrome is a huge RAM and performance cutter, so close it and all its background processes

Step 3. Adjust game settings

In your Steam game list, alt-double-click a game to show the settings window. Here disable or lower the resolution of the external (spectator) monitor
Lower the in-game graphics of the game
Try minimizing the spectator window
Overlapping any program on the spectator window decreases performance, so try to avoid that as much as possible
You can increase the game process priority to make Windows giving it priority from the resources, thus avoid stuttering

Step 4. Adjust System settings

If you have overclocks on your hardware, revert it to stock speed
Update your BIOS
If you haven’t upgraded to Windows 10, do that
Adjust the Power Management settings to High Performance

Step 5. Adjust Driver settings

Try to roll back to another (earlier) version of NVidia graphics driver that still supports Direct Mode
Adjust the performance setting to High Performance in NVidia Control Panel
Shadowplay should be disabled from NVidia GeForce Experience
NVidia Services that should be disabled: Streamer Service, Stereoscopic 3D Driver Service, Streamer Network Service
