Is your card AGP or PCI-E?

Also a note with the VLC player. If you're running realtek onboard audio (had this happen on 650 and 850 on 3 different machines) and using nvidia drivers newer than 5.10 I recommend just using realtek's drivers. Latest version is 3.78. Otherwise the sound comes out at full blast and insanely distorted with VLC no matter what the volume settings are at. It hurts with headphones on, heh.
