It could possibly be a resource conflict with the USB and soundcard sharing the same IRQ. You might want to consider physically moving the soundcard to another available PCI slot?


Re: VIA Chipset woes

Hmm . . . did you both have an onboard sound chip enabled prior to installing the proper soundcards? If so, is it properly disabled in BIOS ?

btw, Have we talked about hardware acceleration yet?

Multimedia Control Panel has a hardware acceleration slider
So does DirectX Diagnostic Tool (start -> run -> dxdiag) (Audio tab, I think)

Try moving slider(s) back a notch or two to see if it makes any difference.
