That can be fixed sometimes by giving the audio a larger buffer in your media player. You can also try a different USB port, a USB port that is on a...
So, I finally made the leap and bought a usb DAC to power my M-Audio AV40's. When music is playing (and it sounds great, btw!) and I proceed to do anything CPU intensive, I get a lot of static/chatter over the speakers.
