yes, it DOES eat extra CPU due to hw acceleration being disabled, but it's probably still faster than waveOut most of time anyway, and the amount of extra CPU time is unnoticeable on 1GHz+ machines.
[edit] quick note that above info applies to win2k/xp machines, on win9x disabling dsound acceleration means emulating dsound on waveOut, which will always eat more CPU than waveOut itself.
