Hey Guys

I finished a computer build today and installed windows 8. I then updated everything, installed the AMD CCC, etc. Checked my RAM timings (they are set correctly). Yet still I get this terrible choppiness/lag. For instance, when there's a system sound the sound usually is delayed and choppy/split/muddy. Also. the mouse has crazy bad lag, its basically playing catch up. Additionally, opening/closing windows, moving them, etc also causes lag.

Does anyone know what to do from here?
