Sound card conflict's?

  1. After moving my sound card(SB Live Value)to different PCI slot's(5 total)to keep it from sharing IRQ's with my video card(MSI G4 Ti4600)it now share's IRQ's with other 'applications' that I am unfamiliar with. Only two slot's allow for my video card to have it's own IRQ(11) and not share with my sound card. Slot 3 assign's my sound card to IRQ 9 sharing it with 'Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System' & 'Intel 82801BA/BAM USB Universal Host Controller-2444'. Slot 4 assign's my sound card to IRQ 10 sharing it with 'Intel 82801BA/BAM SMBus Controller-2443'. What are these "application's" sharing IRQ's with my sound card and then which of the two IRQ's would be best for my sound card as far as performance/conflict's? Thanks

    Either one should have no effect on your sound card. I've heard that Logitech USB mice don't like being on the same IRQ as the sound card .. but those are few and far between. Unless I'm wrong either one of those should be fine. I'd put it in Slot 4 just to be extra sure.
