Does this occur in other games? nForce2 audio (Soundstorm I'm assuming) gets processed on the Southbridge (black chip near the PCI slots) and it could be overheating. You could try lowering hardware sound acceleration in dxdiag. Or the southbridge may need a passive heatsink to cool it down and let it process.

You may need a driver update.
