    Hi,

    I posted this in another thread but thought some of you might want to read it and have a go at the remedy suggested:

    Noise from graphics card. I had the same problem - ATI card, MSI m/board and EMU audio card.

    Easily remedied:

    You simply need to screen the audio card from the graphics.
    I did this by fitting an old network card between graphics and sound card. I didn't install the actual software, just stuck the network card in the slot to act as a barrier.
    Works silently now.

    Try it out and if it works for you, spread the word. Lots of people online suffering same problem.

    If you use on board audio, not sure what you can do.

    I hope this helped some of you.:)

    unfortunately my slots are tight, the only full speed pcie is directly under my sound card. it's a pita for sure.

    This here is a better solution that doesnt require taking up a PCI Slot....

    Make your own EMI shielding for soundcards

    Its a fairly cheap and easy straightforward solution which can be made out of everyday items found around the house.

    Seems a long way round. Plug a board in -done. No risk of shorting anything out. EMI filter needs to be earthed for it to work properly. Risky.
