Static/Buzzing Noise when Scrolling/Playing Games

Hello,
Whenever I scroll, or even start up a game, I hear a staticy noise in my earphones, which are analog(I think thats what its called) I'm not sure what the problem could be :/ 

I have an XFX Radeon HD 6950 2GB card, GA-Z68P-DS3 Motherboard, 8 Gb ripjaw ram, 1.5tb western digital caviar black, 600w silent pro power supply, haf 912 case, i5 2500k processor

I read that maybe I dont have enough power going to my motherboard or something, but idk. Will this staticy noise have an effect on the lifespan of my parts? None of my parts are overclocked, and my xfx card gets around 70-79 degrees on load, around 50-60 degrees on idle. My processor averages at around 40 degrees.

Sounds like you have a grounding problem with the headphones. Can you make sure the plug is all the way in? Do you have another set of headphones to try and see if they have the same issue? What type of headphones are they?

Are these USB headphones? I've never heard USB speakers / headphones that did NOT have this problem to some extent.

Thanks for the reply. The plug is plugged all the way in. I've tried with 3 headphones, and 1 speaker, all with the same outcome. The one I'm using right now is the Razer Moray Earphone. Thanks!
