Default Freezing, Distortion and Screeching Over speakers??

Hey guys, I've been having some issues for a long while with my current Rig. I've fixed a majority of them, but there are two which persist:

Clean install of Windows 7 64 bit, newly updated drivers for GTX 550ti.
AMD Athlon X4 680
8 gigs Corsair DDR3 RAM
500W Corsair PSU
Stock HP motherboard, seen in this picture
Yes, the setup is sloppy, I see no point in organizing everything when i'm just pulling and plugging in cords

In 2-15 minutes of up time with onboard video and audio, the video freezes, the cursor freezes and has black pixelation around it, becomes severely distorted and a high pitched screeching and static comes over the speakers. This is what appears on the screen.
imgur: the simple image sharer
Upon rebooting, there's ~80% chance that it will hang, the screen will not come on, the peripherals don't come on, and the CPU runs at high speed indefinitely. This has been the longest lasting issue.

Any advice?

A new motherboard should fix this up. The stock HP motherboard is probably faulty, as most of them are.... (Surprise!)

I don't know much about AMD processors, so I can't suggest a new mob for you.

Hope I helped.
