Surprisingly enough, sound does affect frame rates more than you might think. Just changing from mono to stereo can cause a measurable drop. How much of a hit it causes probably depends on the system. I was equally surprised to see the 4X anti-aliasing causes my frame rates on FS2K2 to drop by half. Far more than I experienced with Fly II.
