Sound distortions

This is something I didn't expect from a new motherboard, but I think it is a software support problem. It happens, in games mostly, that the sound gets distorted and stutters. It is quite annoying. I'm wondering what could it be?

It's not a very big deal since I don't play much. I was just trying some games and noticed this consistently happening. Music playing is fine in other programs though.

Any ideas?

sound card

Try playing with the switches in a mixer. IIRC toggling AC97 18-bit improved my sound quality a lot.

I don't think I have that

I don't think I have that switch. My onboard sound identifies as HDA Intel and the chip is Realtek ALC888.
