    when i added 4 new 1 gig RAM modules i started getting staticy sounds coming through my speakers when i play games or listen to music. The static isnt always there, and sometimes i can hear the sound fine. When i do get static, though it is VERY annoying and cant hear the actual sound

    Is there something wrong with my sound card or what?

    What RAM did you have before? And what is the brand name of the RAM you bought, was it new?
