    My speakers start to blip and screech and such (it's very unnatural and painful to hear from speakers I spent 5 months saving up for) after about two hours of playing America's Army. Once I exit the game, I can play sounds and music again perfectly well. I am puzzled.

    My sound card is a Sound Blaster Audigy Gamer and my speakers are Logitech z640s.

    Make sure you have the latest drivers for your sound card, and the latest patch for the game.

    This only happens after you play it for a while, right?

    I kinda have that with my sound card...after a while my mp3's start to crack or pause for a second...it fixes when I restart my computer, I don't know what else you could do.

    Make sure your computer is "clean", i.e., no spyware and all that junk. Download Ad-Aware, and run that, it should clean all that stuff up.

    Yeah, only after playing for a good bit.

    I am "clean," I make sure of that every day before I shut the thing down when I go to bed.

    Here's a quick solution.

    Turn off your speakers and keep playing.

    Actually...maybe just try turning the speakers off, then on, when it starts to mess up, that might help.

    And nizzie, gamers don't sleep :)

    I've tried it, but it doesn't work. Maybe it's my sound card overheating or something, however absurd that sounds.

    As a matter of fact, when I first got this motherboard, the sound would start to go crazy after a while. I tought that maybe it was overheating, so I put a heatsink on the southbridge of my motherboard, and it hasn't done anything since. I've never heard of anybody putting heatsinks on a Audigy though...still, you might want to just stick a fan pointing towards it, and see how long you can play.

    I'll give it a try. Maybe I'll cut a spot for a fan in the side of my case if that's the issue, even though it's a Dell with a mostly-plastic, really annoying case.

    Before you do any cutting though, just leave the case open with a fan pointing towards it. If the sound still messes up, then that's probably not it.

    Have you updated your mobo chip drivers?
