No, I'm quite sure of this.

I use GetTickCount() to compute how fast my program solves test suite problems
(among other things). Here are my solution times from the first few WAC
problems:

0.869
(didn't solve)
0.021
0.010
0.012
0.019
0.021
0.039
0.013
0.017

So it seems to me that GetTickCount() is usually accurate to the millisecond.

It would be trivial to write a program to verify this fact, to be 100% sure.
