So i installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 on my machine. But, it appears whenever there is any excessive (barely any) CPU use, the audio lags, does not matter what application the sound is coming from. (scrolling on internet explorer while a clip is playing, browsing with itunes.. etc...) I tried downloading new drivers from SoundBlaster but it did not seem to work. It either didnt detect my Audigy Card or it didnt solve the issue. Mobo chipset drivers are up to date as well. Any Suggestions?
also, i lag in most games. Games like CSS run pretty smooth, but when i first got my computer it ran smoother. Now when i play Bioshock and such, it lags and most games do. I know my computer can run these games like butter, but i dont think its because i have windows 7. It ran games fine in Vista. Could this be a sign of my video card going out as well?
