Abit AV8 sound and graphics

  Bourbon Rovers 20:47 02 Aug 04

I have just upgraded my processor to AMD 64 3500+, the motherboard to the Abit AV8, the PSU to Antect Truepower 430W and my sound card to a Creative Audigy 2 NX (external). I already have an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card.

I installed the everything except the sound card and while playing Far Cry the sound crackled and broke up and the graphics became very choppy. I presume that this is frame rate? I then thought to upgrade the soundcard. This didn't resolve the problem.

I have since been checking the various product manufacturer's forums for similar difficulties and found various users mentioning incompatibility between the Abit motherboard and the Antec PSU.

Can I resolve this problem? How do I resolve it? What recompense do I have?

In anticipation.
