Audio Playback Stuttering when high internet usage..

Hello, First of all, my config:

CPU: Intel pentium dual core e5400 2.7Ghz
GFX: Sapphire HD 6670 1GB gddr5
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-G41M combo (Award Modular bios v6.00 PG)
HDD: WD Caviar Green 1TB (EARX)

Network adapter: Atheros AR8151 PCI-E gigabit ethernet controller (NDIS 6.20)

I am experiencing audio playback stuttering. I checked if this is due to processing or ram usage, but nothing was wrong there as audio was playing well under high processing load and high memory usage. But recently, i found that when i browse internet or download something, it starts to lag. I am using winamp 5.63. I came to know that a few other people are experiencing this problem too, but i didnt find any solution.

Is the problem happening due to drivers or something else? and how do i fix it?

    I recently had a hardware change (mobo and gfx). before this playback was seamless even on slower connections.
    So, i am quite sure that internet connection is not a problem.

    ok, then take a look at the audio chipset drivers for the Realtek ALC888B.
  4. did you reinstall windows after mobo change?

    The audio drivers installed on my pc are "Realtek Function driver for Realtek Azalia audio chip (Including Microsoft UAA Driver in English edition)" v5.10.0.6642.

    for win 7 32
  7. i usually skip getting drivers from the motherboard manufacturer and go directly to the chip manufacturer.
