    Angry Sound + Gaming problem.

    Hi, once again... I have a hardware problem.
    My sound card doesn't give me problems when I'm listening to music and stuff like that.. But when I'm playing a game.. any game, such as Quake III - Bid For Power, the sound pauses and echoes and sounds scratchy and the game is really slow and stuff. I know my video card sucks, but come on.. is it going to effect the sound as well?

    Video Card:
    NVIDIA Aladdin TNT2
    Total Memory:
    24MB (24MB Video)(32MB AGP)

    Thanks.

    Sound Card
    C-Media PCI
    Maximum Standard Sampling Bits
    16-bit

    Both are onboard.. do they suck that much or can I do something to enjoy gaming (without buying something..)

    I'm on Windows XP, Pentium 3 @ 866MHz, 640MB RAM (32MB shared)
    <sarcastic>um... yeah</sarcastic>

    Wanna get pwned?

    My updated sound card drivers sux0r... I had to drop down to Win2k drivers because the ones for XP made everything worse. There were some wavs I couldn't even hear.

    Have you tried turning up the processor power devoted to sound? I believe it's in control panel for sound, hardware acc. If I remember correctly, with my old computer that had onboard sound it was turned all the way down by default.

    Let me know if that works, if not; perhaps I can think of something else.
