Audigy causing static sound?

Just recently, I started to hear really odd static coming out of Audigy, i think. When I listen closely with my Sennheiser 280pros, there is a light static when I move things in windows. What I mean by that is that if I resize a window, scroll, or something like that... it causes a light static sound. This only occurs when I do something like that. I find this very, very strange. My soundcard is an Audigy ES i believe, and i've already tried updating the drivers. Could the soundcard have gone defective? Is something else causing interference? I have not had this problem up until now.

thanks for the help everyone, but i got it figured out.

i asked my roommate about it, he told me that the analog signal coming from my vidcard->monitor, or wiring from monitor may be causing interference with the soundcard. so i moved the sound card to my lowest slot to keep it away from the vidcard. long and behold, it worked!
