Sound is glitchy, stutter-y almost

  1. Since i bought my new HP Pavillion Elite m9500y, my sound has been having major issues. I bought this PC to play games, mostly like The Sims 3 and World Of Warcraft, and the games run great graphics wise and performance wise. The only major issue i am having is that my sound is really glitchy, it sounds choppy in the way that videos will get choppy on a bad video card. It works fine if the computer is not used for a few days, and i can play my games and watch videos, but after a while it goes back to being really choppy, almost like the sound is stuttering, i recorded a sound bite from a video, hopefully you can hear what i mean. any suggestions would be great, just dont tell me to check the driver, i've done that and done that, drivers are not the issue. could it be i need a new sound card, or my computer is getting too hot?

    here is the sound sample- http://www.mediafire.com/?yln5trmltvm
