I would check one of the memory apps out in app store or from other sources
if my free memory gets under 20MB stuff start to perform a lot worse

Thanks. I checked processor, memory reads/writes/free, disk reads/writes, network i/o - nothing there.
I ran disk utility verify disk and got the dreaded "run repair". Repair claimed I had to reformat and restore.
So I did the erase, and re-verify; clean report. Restore from Time Machine claims it will be done in seven hours.

Update: Restore completed with no issues, but frame drop, stutter, judder remain.
I have a lion partition to try, and then I'll try a clean snow leopard to a new partition.
