Usually you check for input/changes (collisions, etc.) in the world first, then you do the sound/video-stuff, followed by things like submitting data over a network (e.g., with MP-games).

I would submit the data over the network before doing sound/video. Latency is a huge problem in MP games, so you should send your data ASAP.
