    Hi,

    I have a little problem, cause i've noticed that when i'm using my integrated SC, i've got lower framerate... for example : in Q3 w/ SC - 230fps, w/o SC - 300fps, PK w SC -130fps, w/o - 200fps... almost all games have this issue... so my question is this : is it normal ? when i'll change SC to SB Live! or sth like that, will that problem remain ?

    Thx

    integrated sound uses cpu process time to process and encode/ decode sounds where as a SPU built onto a normal addin sound card uses less cpu time

    any SB Live!/Audigy card will result in faster frames

    Yes, do a search, there are many threads on the repercussions of using onboard sound in games.
