DirectX version? There could be some DX Audio codec affecting it? :/

Anything done recently that could have affected it - i.e., for example, installed drivers for any other hardware?

May be a similar issue to the built in sound on nforce2 chipsets. Overheating causes crackling sound.

I could be making this up so someone please correct me if I'm wrong. If it's a slow CPU (don’t know what speed it is) could it not be getting enough processor time resulting in intermittent sound? This would expose itself in the more demanding games that you’ve listed rather than a video. Have you tried older games or turning the sound quality down?

This is of course if you’ve tried reinstalling direct x and the drivers.
