SoundMax is on-board, right? I know it's not the most 'helpful' suggestion but it's probably worth just buying a cheap sound card, you can use it in your next pc if it's worth it and it will probably save you 5% or more processor clock time that you can use on something else.

Even the uber top spec board I bought for my last pc had broken on-board sound so I bought a reasonably priced Sound Blaster X-Fi (was a budget version) which gives me much better sound quality and better system stability. I'll also drag it over to my next pc whenever that happens.

I think Mach has covered everything else you should be starting with.
