[HARDWARE] Processor slow down....

My Celeron 333 oc'd to 515 was crunching at about 1.4 mkey's/sec.   I
recently upgraded my modem and sound cards from an ISA Sportster 28.8
and an ESS1688 based sound card to a PCI Winmodem 56k and CL Ensoniq PCI
sound card.   when I did that, the keys dropped to 1.05 mkey's/sec...  
Are PCI devices, even when not being used (not connected to the
internet, and not using any sound) still taxing the CPU?
