ok ive had the same exact problem for 2 years on my computer, i have an AMD 1ghz t-bird, 256megs of ram (133 speed), 30 gig 5400 hd, tnt2 32 meg, and most important for this thread lol, a pc128 creative sound blaster, i think everybody knows how much this card sucks, but yeah heres my problem....

everytime i have music playing say liek with winamp, and i minimize or maximize, or do anythign really even right click and refresh the desktop it wil gargle and speed up slightly even. its incredibily annoying, and i dont really expect much from the card other then to play music without that ****, i can explain more if theres questions, but other then that can anybody help who has heard of this?!

i tried updating the drivers like 4 months ago, and they were the same ones as 2 years ago, so yeah if anybody can help lol, thanks.
