Software mixing is usually faster, since you aren't flooding the system
bus with audio data; you mix in main RAM and send the final stream to
the sound card once, instead of several streams and have the hardware
mix it (at least, that's my understanding of what "hardware sound" does).
The nforce motherboards have the audio chip on the northbridge, which
means you might be able to get around this, but most sounds cards don't
have this luxury.
