Start up Star Citizen with fewer stuttering issues and enjoy!
The OS, Page File and Star Citizen should all be installed on SSD. None of these three items should be on a regular harddrive.
16GB Ram is the minimum for this game; 32GB is the optimum to avoid using the Page File much.
Make sure you do have a page file set, especially if you have less than 32GB of ram. Generally a 16-32 GB page file will be appropriate.
The in-game Quality setting sets the balance of workload between the CPU and GPU. Currently, most players will be CPU bottlenecked by the single Render Thread, so it is advised to run the game at the highest Quality level. This will offload as much work from the CPU to the GPU as possible.
Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling can improve stutter if your system supports it.
Persistent graphical bugs are often caused by cached shaders. Delete the StarCitizen/LIVE/USER/Client/0/shaders folder
Nvidia settings can also cache shaders, leading to graphical bugs. Open NVIDIA Control Panel, Manage 3D settings, and set Shader Cache to off.
