it happens with all mmorpg games i play. WoW and guild wars. i'll get video stuttering and sound popping. and it's not lag either. lag is when objects warp stutter. this stuttering is the entire screen. i've tried messing with pci latency but nothing...

this has also happened on my 9600xt.

Does running at stock frequencies for ALL equipment fix the problem?

Check and make sure that you don't have IRQ's sharing. For some reason newer video cards and onboard NIC cards like to share IRQ's nowadays. I know I had a similiar problem. Usually you'll find under the device manager that they share IRQ 16 (or around there).

If they are sharing, you can try throwing a PCI NIC card in. IRQ handling is handled exclusively by Windows since W2k, and although I've heard of people doing voodoo to change devices IRQ's I my self have never had any success that didn't render the rest of the OS useless.

Bottom line... try throwing a NIC card in and disable onboard NIC. Goodluck.
