WoW with mumble mouse problem on older CPU

  • Hello, I have a problem, which I know could be due to outdated hardware which I'm going to replace soon, but maybe there is some way around it. I mean, when I run Skype everything is fine, and supposedly Skype is anything but lightweight, while Mumble is to be the opposite.

    To be honest I don't even meet minimum requirements for WoW, but it works, kind of slowly, but keeps me busy until I get better gear, erm, I mean PC.

    The problem is, when I run mumble in the background, the mouse cursor starts to get jumpy, stuttering, to the point of the game being unplayable.

    I'm a noob when it comes to hardware, but I guess it may have something to do with the single core processor - Athlon 64 3000+ (i'm not sure if that's the correct number atm, but the speed is 1,8 GHz) or my soundcard which is semi-professional audio system not designed for gaming and all - PCI E-MU 1212m on ASIO drivers. The soundcard has given me several problems on some occasions already.

    My OS is Windows XP 32 bit.

    I'll try to run the game with onboard soundcard right now (it's turned off in bios normally) see what happens, though the quality of sound is sooo much better with E-Mu.

    Hope you can help me out on this one,
    Bartosz
