Speaker fade problem

i have a 5.1 speaker system. i had a problem that i thought would be fixed by getting a sound card, and i play games a lot, so i thought, why keep relying on onboard audio when i should get a soundcard? so i got an asus xonar dx and it works fine, but my original problem seems to still be happening. my problem is that my speakers will start out at the loudness they should be, then fade out to be quieter, and then be loud again, which as you can imagine, is maddening. i cant determine if the problem is hardware of software related, but this problem is really pissing me off. i would really appreciate some help or advice on what to do.
thanks

Have you tried a different set of speakers to make sure its not the speakers?
That would be the first course of action to eliminate the hardware side of it.
Then we can move on to the software part

are you plugging to the speaker connection on the back of your system?
If so I believe trying another set of speakers regardless how cheap they are will show the problem
I'm basing this off your headset doesn't fade so I'm looking at speaker failure at this point.
