Computer is 2 years old, never had any real performance problems until now.
When I'm playing music, or have any sound for that matter, about once a minute it freezes/distorts itself for ~5 seconds. It happens all the time, even if I'm not doing anything resource-intensive, but it's worse when I'm playing a game or something. The video of a game also freezes sometimes (at the same time as the audio), but not as often. And this happens when I play Warcraft 3... a 10 year old game that I used to play on my old pentium 4 just fine. Drivers seem up to date, and I ran malwarebytes and it didn't find anything wrong.
When I reboot, it's fine for about a day before the problem comes back.
To help describe the audio issue, here's a short clip where you can hear the sound getting messed up for the first 5 seconds (playing from my itunes):
