Audio crackly with new computer

Hi guys;

I have a new computer, in every sense of the word: just built, new components (except for my hard drives) and a fresh installation of Windows XP to boot.

I am currently experiencing audio problems, with the audio crackling with videos online. This seems fairly random and will occur for around 1-5 seconds in duration.

I tested one of the sample songs provided with the OS; and that is a little crackly and skips as well....but at a very specific point of the song; namely 54 seconds in.

I have checked my device manager and don't see any problems with the drivers.

I have tried two diffferent sets of headphones, with the same problems.

1) How can I fix this?
2) Is the problem caused by my motherboard?
3) Should I get the mobo replaced?

Please help!

Do you have any wireless equipment such as cordless telephones etc or a microwave oven anywhere near the computer.
Do you have speakers connected to the MB and if so have the speakers been tested on another computer.

Please provide information about the following, MB, PSU, add on video card (if one is used) speakers (again if used) brand and model name or number of each please, provide links if you can.
