    Default IRQ question

    I discovered my video card in PCI-E x16 slot is sharing same IRQ as the sound card in PCI-E x1 slot. I don't understand why the BIOS put those two on the same IRQ, but isn't it better to have them on separate IRQ's?

    Shared IRQ's are no big deal...
    Take care,

    Both sound card and video card on same IRQ is fine? I remember advice in the past was to have them on separate IRQ's. Funny thing is, in Vista they show up in Resources as not having any conflict.
