A dropout when you start playback of a project shouldn't affect what you hear.

When loading a program, xruns can happen. Sometimes it happens when I load a plugin that has a large sample bank. During those times, your computer might be a bit overwhelmed but it's fine because you're just "setting up" to use the DAW. If xruns don't happen while you're working on the project, it's fine.

2-3 blocks of 512 samples is a bit high though. I'd expect you should be able to do better than that. I can run 3 blocks of 128 samples reliably with my Asus sound card.

Did you set your CPU governor to performance so that it doesn't throttle down to a lower speed? You may have to do that. (Look for cpufrequtils.)
