    I am having a weird stutter(pause like) Thing going on. It happens every 2-3 seconds. I noticed it in a game (Vampire bloodlines) But it does it also when i am at the desktop. It is accompanied by a slight crackle from the speakers. I updated and reistalled my soundcard Drivers. Updated My Vid card drivers. Ran Spybot and adaware, And even used norton system works. I have no idea what is causing this but i cant play games because its like Lag in a multiplayer game!! Below is my Dxdiag. Let me know if a can provide more information.

    I also have a Radeon 9600XT and was having some choppy issues in the game... I ended up having to upgrade to 1gig RAM and it is still minorly choppy if I move the mouse around erratically in the 4 hubs...

    very high requirements for this game... not sure about the sound being choppy and whatnot outside of the game, though
