Hi guys, so far I'm very pleased with the results from my new soundcard (after a few niggles *user error *) however I've just tried to play a game and there are problems. I'm not all that fused about the game sound quality - I'm just using stereo after all but there is some major stuttering. The dialogue and general effects are ok but the music is almost non-existence. Does anyone know why this might be? Also I'm playing my music through foobar2000 with stunning sound quality however for some reason there is a short amount of noise (less than a second) at the end of each song - its not really a problem but makes me jump when I have the volume turned up I'm wondering whats causing it? I'm using EAC and at the moment just using .WAV Cheers, Nick.
