Computer runs gameplay fine but chokes on cutscenes in most games?

I have no idea what would cause this. Most games, I can run on highish settings at 1680x1050, but as soon as something pre-rendered--or sometimes just scripted--happens my computer shits itself and gives me a slideshow. Even if the scene looks significantly WORSE than normal gameplay. I had to watch the cutscenes from DE: Human Revolution on YouTube, it was so bad, just to give one example.

Windows 7 64
Q6600 G0 @ 2.4ghz (stock)
4gb 1066 ram
ip-35 mobo
HD 5770 1GB
WD 500gb 7200RPM...keep 20%+ empty, auto-defragged.

The only thing I can guess is some problem with my hard drive or ram, although this has been going on for a very long time so I would think I'd have experienced a total failure by now. Anyone know other possibilities?

    That's kind of weird. Do you have your paging file turned on? How big is it? Another possible issue is some codec thing - if you've got some messed up codec that could fuck with video playback. Do you have any codec packs installed?

    Did you google this problem? This is one of the first responses:

    As always: Make sure graphics card drivers are updated, game is patched, try fiddling with in-game settings.
