Can you provide a bit more information? Is it jerky all the time or during boot? Or is it only certain applications? Desktop or RT or both?

Happens randomly long after boot. Mostly notice it in Firefox, but have seen it happen using a program called Wavepad. Seems to happen when my HDD is being accessed. My specs are in my sig. Happened on a completely different rig as well. Using Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 3000 and Wireless Mouse 5000.

Run CrystalDiskInfo and make sure that all your hard-drives are healthy, as it could be that your drive is failing. However, you also mention that it happened on another system. Are there any common denominators? The same brand of mouse? Have you installed the drivers for your mouse / keyboard (if you have perhaps you could try uninstalling them)? Are you running the same programs (Firefox, Bittorrent)?
Have you tried using a different browser? It might be an unstable plugin.

When your mouse is playing up is your keyboard responsive? As in, can you use keyboard shortcuts to launch the Start screen, alt-tab between apps, etc? It's quite possible it's just a mouse fault rather than a Windows 8 fault per se.

Given that your problem seems to be with the mouse and not with general system responsiveness I'd definitely uninstall that and see if it helps, as I've found that mouse and keyboard utilities tend to cause more problems than they're worth.
No issues with the keyboard that I can tell. Windows 8 auto-downloaded the intellipoint software, so it might be a bug with that.
