makes mouse movements jerky, games unplayable, videos unwatchable and music unenjoyable.

there is no cpu spiking etc. Memory usage, while exceeding capacity, shows no sign of being a cause

this only starts occurring after the system has been on a while, will post back with more information such as time till next incidence, hijack this log, system specs, etc.
rebooting works as a temporary fix.

Sounds like the prob I had, when I had an old sis-based mobo. It lagged and stuttered. Couldnt do much it was a fault in the mobo. So, I biffed it

I wonder about this, if the system is using more than the installed RAM
your system will be paging a lot... any sign of thrashing? (lots of hard drive access when the problem manifests).

You stated memory usage exceeds capacity......!! As stated this will cause disk paging which in turn causes stuttering.....

How do you know this isnt the cause?

I had that problem recently. It took me ages to find it. Turned out to be the CD/DVD (SATA) drive.
I replaced it and haven't had the problem since.
