Kyo Posted January 5, 2006 Posted January 5, 2006 Hi I have recently got my rig together first time without any issues (*touch wood*) as i have researched on quite a bit of material, which thankfully i have followed that has made this install one of the easiest motherboards, i have installed in a long time. Thankfully i have not experienced any of the troubles that seem to be plaguing some people. One thing i have noticed is that sometimes (quite rarley) particularly online gaming in CSS say that if there a huge explosion or series of explosion while there intense animation for gunfire exchange my system would hang or stutter for a second or 2 before it catches up and play the actual sound. Was just thinking along the lines that because i am using the onboard sound via the Karajan module, would this involve using a small amount of CPU resources that already taxed at the precise moment, that could explain why it takes a very small duration to catch up before playing the sound. My query is that if i stopped using the onboard sound and used a PCI sound card instead would that make a difference in performance, with seperate hardware device you would have that it should give me a better overall performance.? In the meantime I have just upgraded to the Nvidia sound driver instead of the Realtek one to see if it makes a difference first and iuisePCI card as a last resort. Any input or advise would be appreciated. Kyo Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
