I know this is not helping you, but my work system (Dell P4 2.2GHz) exhibits
similar problems. For one, my (USB) mouse becomes very jerky when I do
intense net or disk access

I tried swapping boards and a few other things, and eventually resigned
myself to it, it isn't a supposed to be a multimedia system.

It's kind of ironic that older systems worked much better...
