What processor, what ram, do you have a separate sound card?

Those are the 3 parts most likely responsible for choppy sound.

Does it happen if you use something other then itunes? Try using WMP and see if it still happens.

Hey i am still having this problem. I use wmp and it is better than itunes.

I still get audio skipping when i hold down shift or control.

Furthermore, I noticed that it is only when the volume is high. Will a sound card fix this problem?

Got nothing to lose if you try. You can always return the card if its not the culprit.

i got a sound card and it minimized the problem... but it still occurs.
