    I tried to fit a good amount of into into the subject.

    Basically, When I up my FSB to 210-220, My sound card which happens to be a AC'97 Built in, it like either Fully goes away, or it will like play 500miliseconds in winamp, then stop.. I think my problem is.. that i'm cheap, and i just need a PCI based sound card. Am I right?

    I've had similar problems to yours, and I never could solve them. I found it just to be something that happens with some hardware. Using a PCI card does solve the problem though

    Is your PCI bus locked?

    because my "onboard" audio runs off the PCI bus.
