Choppy Shoutcast Playback with Nforce Networking Controller

After a fair amount of troubleshooting, I've come to the conclusion that the nForce networking controller (in my case on 2 different generation boards; Abit NF7-S v2.o (nForce2) and DFI LP UT NF4 Expert (nForce 4) doesn't stream certain shoutcast stations as nicely as a normal PCI NIC such as the D-Link DFE-530TX+. I've tried numerous different nForce chipset drivers on each of the two above mentioned boards with no success in relieving the problem. With the nForce NICs, stations such as constantly have to re-buffer during the stream as if the NIC has some problem in keeping up with the data being sent. But streaming this same station using the D-Link PCI NIC instead results in flawless playback. Has anybody else here noticed this problem with their nForce boards?
