The onboard sound has gotten great. I am using mine with an asus board and
love it. I just took out my creative soundcard so I could have an extra pci
slot. Mine was originally cracking and popping, so I had to move the video
card all the way down to the slot furtherst away from the sound chips.
Have you tried listening to your sound without your pci deviced installed?
It is alot of trouble, but you should rule that out. Do have expensive
HDD's? I used an old Western Digital from a long time ago (only 10gb) and it
caused alot of noise for me. Luckily I was only using it to boot up because
it had windows 98 on it. But that is another story altogether.
Do you have any cables unplugged on one end but the other end is going into
the computer somewhere?
