I use a voice chat program while playing battlefield 3. Within the past week, I bought a Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card and for some reason when I'm playing battlefield 3 and using a mic, there is a great amount of static and white noise. I can play counter strike source with no problem using the mic.
A friend has a similar problem, he has a Xonar product and he noticed it happening after installing a GTX 6 series video card.
I've searched and can't find a fix for this, anyone have any suggestions?
