Other than it eats my CPU, i found that the Sound Card System Clock stability is -0.05%, which result in a degrade of gaming and DVD quality.

I wanna take a new sound card, which have a good Sys Clock stability. If anyone of ya have ATI MMC, u can check ur sound card stability in the ATI Multimedia Launchpad which u can find it in the Control Panel. The lower part of the MMC setting have a test program. y dont ya test it and post up the result including which sound card u 're using so ppl can judge which sound card is the best and we can afford it -.-"
