It could be a driver problem but also do you have loads of things running in the background when playing games?, run system information and run the direct x tests.

Your soundcard is only part of your multi-media set-up. If your system is overstretched one of the areas it can show up is in sound quality. As has already been suggested reduce background tasks,reduce video and sound quality. Improve these settings gradually until you get a balance between quality and performance.
Incidentally, high quality graphics and sound cards can be held back if the processor is not up to it.
