    I have a va503+ with a sb live card and a g-force 4 card. it's clocking 500
    MHz with 384 Mb of ram running windows 2000. when I play a song with
    Windows media player, it plays great. but when I have the graphics turned
    on, such as the swirly ambient thingy, the song becomes incredibly choppy
    and slow. furthermore, I just bought Soldier Of Fortune 2 and installed it.
    it starts fine, but once I fire a few times, and some explosions go off, it
    becomes choppy like lag on a modem game and the volume breaks up and
    scatters. SOF worked fine and so did Ghost Recon, but those were both before
    the new card. but i have had this problem before the new card with the
    music on WMP. GTA3 works okay, it gets a little bogged down at time, but
    never any broken sound, and Swat 3 is interesting, because it only has the
    sound problem on loading screens, where as with SOF2, the loading screens
    are the only thing that doesn't act up. I saw you guys joking 503+'s in
    early posts, but trust me. I didn't build the thing, nor would I keep this
    cpu if I had the money for a Pentium 4. is there anyone that knows what may
    be my problem, outside of the fact that I'm using an over clocked 503+?
    believe it or not, during heavy attacks on Beach Head 2000, it actually gets
    bogged. that game would play fine on a Tandy 1000. what's up?

    I believe you are experiencing PCI bus hogging. Might be the GF4 or the
    SBLive. It might help to update the drivers (GF4, SBLive and VIA 4 in 1),
    but only if you are using really old ones. The latest drivers might not be
    the best. Also, check this out: http://www.deinmeister.de/mvp3_zlt_e.htm

    original speed is 500. it's not over clocked. my bad. it has no problems
    outside of the one mentioned, and the problem has existed before the g-force
    4 card.
