Yes, they have their own bag of problem though ;)

I think intel ICH is one of the more problematic chipsets. Using a program
where you have tight control over setting the audio interface parameters you
could find a set of working ones and then try to get your other programs to
use similar settings..
Things to try out would be:
a] different sampling rates [my first guess would be that 48khz works best]
b] opening the audio device playback only
c] use a perdiod sizo between 256 and 1024 and rather many periods..

This could be a bit problematic if you use the corresponding usb port..
