has anyone around here experienced problems and/or audio drop outs with Windows 7 x64 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M??

can I buy this laptop without compelling to a long chinese crying for audio drop outs problems? apart of DPC latency checker and Latency monitor applications, are there other stress tests that I should ask to the technical division of the company, as they told me that they can stress test the machine before I buy it?

Has anyone around there another alternative solution in this price range?
