I think you can do shift+stop or something to cancel the current take.

The brand of graphics card doesnt make much difference, I think this is
due to the context switches your system is doing to run ardour under jack,
its better if you run at higher latencies or use an SMP system.

You could check your graphics card setup is optimal though, e.g. run 16bit
if you dont need 24 and make sure youre using all the right options.
