Well it might not be the CPU that's at fault, what's your soundcard & mobo,
even with the most sorted latency on VIA chipsets I'm still getting problems
with sound cards @ high CPU loads (specialy when building & compressing).
This can be agrvated by soundcards with problems (creative SB Lives being a
prime candidate)... I was havin' a fight with an SB Live on a dual 1900XP
system 512Mb DDR & a mix of 7k2 rpm IDE & 10k0 rpm SCSI drives.
