Is it possible to determine the worst case latency (i.e. in micro
or milliseconds) with jackd? Otherwise "cyclictest" gives some
accurate numbers, please check
http://www.tglx.de/projects/misc/cyclictest/

The situation is that even with PAT support enabled (see other post),
the worst case latency for a high priority task should always stay well
below one millisecond. So if you have high latencies even if not using
any 3D applications, then i suspect some kind of hardware problem.

If you have a PCI IDE controller laying around, you may try that one
instead of the on-board nforce4 IDE controller, just to check if it makes
a difference.
