And this is a frequently discussed item...

Your system has relatively high latency fetching audio files and playing them back at the same time.

This takes up all the CPU time, causing FPS to drop.

SOMETIMES you can improve things greatly by using different audio drivers, newer Hard Drive drivers, or putting in a dedicated audio card at the very worst.

However huge improvements are realized by often using non-OEM audio drivers.

I've talked about this at length in the now very old HP ZD7000/ZD8000 laptop forums where everyone has reported large improvements given my suggestions.
