Sound Repeats and freezes when playing Games

I recently bought a Gigabyte GA-6VRXP with Onboard Soundcard (Creative CT5880 Sound controller). And whenever I play high graphic games like Jedi Knight 2, for example, it will randomly repeat and Freeze (ie. While taking a Blaster shot and it will continually play the Blaster Fire Sound and Freeze my computer). This could be due to the fact that my Graphics card and soundcard are both struggling for resources, but I'm hoping the problem could be with my sound drivers.

My current soundcard drivers are 5.2.3633.0, but the drivers on the Gigabyte website are Now im not sure which one is "more up to date" and whether downloading the drivers on the Giga website will really help. Essentially, I would like to play my games in "peace" without worrying about my computer freezing due to my soundcard. Would anyone care to give their suggestions to my problem? Thanks.
