I like to play mp3s when I'm working, but when I scroll sometimes a bump or skip can be noticed in the music, that also happens when a web page loads (sometimes).
What could be the problem this are my system specs:

Raidmax gaming case 420W PSU
ASUS "K8V SE Deluxe" Socket 754 Mobo
AMD Athlon 64 2800+
Kingmax 184 Pin 2X512MB DDR PC-3200
NEC 16X Double Layer DVD±RW Drive
eVGA nVIDIA GeForce FX5600 Video Card, 256MB DDR
System HDD WD 80GB 7200 RPM SATA
Storage HDDs 160GB + 200 GB IDE
Turtle Beach Santa Cruz Sound Card
Win XP Pro SP2

What player are you using to play MP3s? And I presume that the bumps and skips don't occur at the same point in songs, right?

I use Musicmatch Jukebox and the bumps and skips occur when I'm scrolling or when a page loads but it doesn't happen all the time. I can scroll or surf the web without having any disturbances in the sound.

In all honesty, it sounds like a software issue to me. Have you tried playing the MP3s with other applications like WinAmp or Windows Media Player? If they don't skip on them, and I doubt it will with the latter, then it's most definitely a software issue.

well, MP3 skippage occurs when there's a lot of CPU load and/or memory usage. surfing the web can use up quite a few processes, especially if it isn't all that fast. as said by madcat, try other programs like Winamp, and try other browsers if that doesnt work.
