Default Gaming + paying MP3's

OK i remember bac in the day when C&C was the new hotness i use to be able to play all my MP3's and teh game w/ no problem of lagg at all... Now I have this freshly biult Box and i try ot play City of Hero's and win amp at teh same time... everything gets a bit chopy..

Im running:
P4 2.4
gig ramm
nvidia fx5500
20 gig master 200 gig slave "where my files are"

Any idea how to optimise this so i can listen to my music instead of of teh normal nazi game tunes....

does that CPU have hyperthreading?
if so, turn it on and it will be able to multitask better
