It sounds like it might be a BSOD, have you been getting a message when you start you computer back up? Is it only in one game?

Get MSI Afterburner & monitor your GPU temps - my single GTX460 gave me similar problems - fans were not going fast enough to keep it cool -.

Do you use DisplayPort or a later revision of HDMI(v3/v4)?

Do you use an HDTV?

If yes switch to a DVI-D or an earlier revison of HDMI(v1/1.1), the newer cables have bad shielding so the frequencies of the GPU/Monitor can mix, and that causes the freeze and sound loop.
