I saw it coming due to the tool tip (is that right?) that pops up when you hold the mouse over a thread for a second.

Jack up the PCI speed and you're good to go. Contrary to the apparently common belief here, this can actually improve performance when playing sounds and doing other processing at the same time... in games.

You can also tweak the PCI latency to have the card take up more or less request cycles. More is better for continuous processing, but it may degrade the performance of other PCI devices. Lower values are better for quick random accesses.

Really? What'd you do to it? Did it actually blow up or was it just smoking?
