    It only seems to affect games, but what I've tested so far the sound lags pretty badly in Crysis and Arkham Asylum. Desktop clicking sounds and everything are still right, but in-game sound is noticeable out of sync. I don't know much about sound, what do you need to know about the sound system to help, or what should I do first?

    I just tried turning on hardware acceleration and it's not lagging anymore, but is that really the solution?
