Trying to help my CPU

Post by [email protected] » Sun Apr 21, 2013 4:13 pm

I am currently using a GE Force 8400 with 567 GPU clock and 500mb memory. I use my system for audio recording and it seems that when the graphics are loaded up (or things are moving) it loads down the audio with pops and clicks. I'm wondering if a better Graphics Card would help this problem. I've read that whatever a Graphics card CANT handle has to be taken from your systems CPU and memory. So I'm trying to put the least load on my CPU so its available for audio, which is the main purpose of my system. Any thoughts?
