I get really bad buzz whenever I play a game. It does it when I am plugged into the sound card jacks and when I am plugged into the onboard realtek jacks. It didn't do it until I installed my new motherboard and cpu. It doesn't do it with my headphones plugged into the same jack. Is there anything I can do to resolve this? I looked up a few things like ground loop isolators, but from the reviews it seems like they degrade quality and I'm not sure if it would fix the buzz for me or not. It gets a lot quieter when I enable vsync.

Specs:
Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V mobo
intel core i3 2120
sapphire radeon 7850 1gb
corsair builder series cx600 psu
Creative Sound Blaster Recon3D Fatal1ty sound card

Have you tried lowering the frequency in the Realtek settings? I used to get horrible crackling in video games until I lowered the frequency and it solved it. Just right-click on the system tray icon and then check out the tabs. It's there somewhere :)

Also make sure your drivers are up to date.

I called around and found a place that had a 3.5mm ground loop isolator. It completely got rid of the buzzing sound.
