I bought a Sound Blaster Audigy SE, installed it fine, handles songs and video perfectly but when I try to play CSS or DODS it lags quite a fair bit? The actual sound quality in game is perfect its just the lag?
Tried the driver that came with it and the latest one, disabled the onboard sound too.
My Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro
I've played CnC Generals, Dark Messiah and Half Life 2 offline and they worked perfectly but when I had a go at Half Life 2 Death match I got the same problem as CSS and DODS so it seems to be a problem with the source engine and my new sound card.
I tried everything on high, medium and low and get the same results each time, its not that sort of gamer lag with a drop in fps that you'd normally see, its more of a stutter. I've ran Steam diagnostics and everything came back fine and I've also turned hardware acceleration down knotch by knotch in dxdiag and still get the same results.
Also EAX isn't enabled
