Hey guys...

On my new build, I've noticed that when I'm watching HD video, I notice that sometimes the sound goes slightly out of pitch, and sometimes pops or stutters during playback. It's almost as if the sound is having sync issues. Normally I watch stuff in VLC, but I also noticed it in Miro. I'm currently running Windows 7 Enterprise, and my motherboard is a Gigabyte g41m-es2h with onboard sound.

Any ideas on what the problem could be?

Edited to add:

Only seems as if the problem is when watching higher definition video. Anything that's got a lower bitrate seems to be OK. This problem also doesn't occur when playing high bitrate FLAC files. So, I'm starting to think it's a slight lack in video power? I also have onboard video that I'm running.

Edited to clarify details

More info:

It mostly happens with .mkv files and with H.264 files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
