It has nothing to do with the monitor i think. Resolution/refresh rate can be the problem, maybe vertical sync. Try variating these, and make sure you use your new monitor's native resolution. A gt430 shouldn't have any problems with a game like war3, and i guess you have a decent cpu for this card as well, so the problem must be some settings related. Also you should turn off aero in win7, sometimes it consumes shitloads of resources.

It's not really big resolution, W3 should run flawlessly even tho you have a very low end card.

Try to install the latest drivers for your card from nvidia website.

I don't think it will help if your videos are stuttering too it's not w3's fault.

maybe try running it with the -opengl command, this way war3 will use opengl not directx, which can help in fps increase.
