Weird Issue with my new XFX 780i SLI Motherboard, music cuts in and out when its ....

Hey all,

Ok, first off I want to say I am a computer guy and I run a computer shop out here in Hawaii. Anyways, I just built a new computer for myself.

XFX 780i with two video cards
Raid 0+1 4x HD's
Sound Blaster X-FI
