New VC when I play SC2 no sound

July 29, 2010 at 18:46:44
Specs: Windows 7
I bought a new video card and when I play SC2 it's still choppy and their is no sound. I think it's because I am not getting enough power. I have this for a mother board the rest of the equipment is listed.Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe, 6.00g of ram, and a 550w power supply. I want to get a new power supply but I am not 100 percent sure if that is the cause or it's because the whole system a bit older.

"the rest of the equipment is listed"

The only thing that's listed is the motherboard. Which CPU do you have? 6GB RAM? DDR2-800? 2 x 2GB + 2 x 1GB? Which video card? Just saying you have 550W power supply doesn't mean a hell of a lot. Is it a $20 cheapie or did you pay between $50-100 for something decent? What's the make/model & how many amps on the +12v rail?

sorry I typed it all in and none of it is showing up. The ram is DDR2, the video card is GeForce GTX 460, my case has 5 fans 3 are 120mm and the others hare 80mm, processor is amd anthlon dual core 2.01 GHz, am2 socket. The 550w power supply has +12v rail. output is +3.3V@32A, +5V@40A, +12V1@19A, +12V2@19A, -12V@1A, +5VSB@2A. With my old video card the sound worked, so it is the only thing i can think off. The minimum power supply for the VC is 450w, but under some stress and with all the other things I have in the system I think it is sucking more then the PS can offer. Just let me know, sorry for the confusion.

"With my old video card the sound worked"

The GTX 460 has a built in HDMI audio controller which may have made itself the default audio device. Right click the volume icon, click Playback Devices, and make sure that "Speakers" is your default device. Disable the nVidia HDMI audio.

2x19A is a little on the low side for a card that needs two PCIe power inputs, but it should be enough for the time being.

While you can get away with a 2.6GHz single-core in StarCraft II, the recommended specs call for a 2.4GHz dual-core. Your CPU is holding back your new video card. However, the X2 3800+ is an excellent overclocker, and you have a great board. You should be able to get at least 2.5GHz outta that mofo.

jam will tell you how. I'm going to bed. :-)

The PSU has 2 x 12V rails, you really need a single rail 12V 40A+ PSU from a reputable manufacturer, in the UK you need to spend £50++

By the way why do you need 5 fans ??

I don't need 5 fans, it just came with the tower I bought.

The sounds works normally, just not when I play SC2. I've tried other games and it's fine... It has to be the power... Also I am not 100% sure on how to overclock with this motherboard, i've read a bunch of things but none of them seem to match up with what this mother board has...
