    Audio/Video Sync out

    I'm outputting to the monitor using DVI and to my audio just through the headphone jack (so analogue I believe). I've tried the headphone port at the front of the pc and also the output at the back. I'm only outputting through the one jack (so no surround sound etc).
  2. Hi, I bought a new PC about 6 months ago and have been having some problems. Basically in games (has happened in all games, regardless of video settings), dvd video or even on youtube etc, the audio seems about 3-4 seconds behind the video. I have an Asus P8P67 motherboard and am using the on-board sound. My graphics card is a Gainward GTX580. I've tried removing/updating both the video and audio drivers but this hasn't had any effect. Any suggestions on some ideas to try? Thanks in advance for your help.
  3. Thanks for all the help so far. I think i've decided to get a GTX 580 instead of the 570, because I have the cash now. I also think I will change the case to the Fractal based on sound concerns. Just a couple of quick questions. 1) Will the 750W PSU be fine with a GTX 580. I'm pretty sure it will but just thought I'd double check. 2) Any suggestions on brand for the graphics card? Thanks
  4. Regarding the case, it's all in the eye of the beholder! I understand why people think it's ugly but it got a great review in the Atomic mag and I really like the look. Thanks for all your feedback, definitely helps with the selection process. Cheers
  5. Thanks for that, I've updated the memory selection.
  6. Hi, I'm putting together a new gaming rig. Budget is between $2k and $2.5K, so there's a little room to move. Priority is gaming. Probably the area I'm least sure about is the graphics card.

    Detecting audio hardware

    Yeah, I forgot to mention in my post that the driver disk got lost in our last move. The notebook is a 'powernote' branded notebook that was made locally, so unfortunately I couldn't just go to the manufacturers website either. I found out the mainboard was an ASUS, and the audio hardware was Realtek. I was able to download a generic realtek driver which seems to be working fine. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Detecting audio hardware

    Hi, I recently wiped and reloaded my wife's notebook. Unfortunately, I forgot to note down what audio hardware/drivers were installed before I did this, and now we have no sound and I am in trouble. Do you know anyway to tell what the underlying audio hardware is, and what drivers it needs? The chipset is Intel mobile 915 GM, but the Intel support site has been less than helpful. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers,
