Windows 7: Game crash followed by graphical glitches until system restart

Game crash followed by graphical glitches until system restart

About 2 times a week, when playing StarCraft II, the game will crash randomly, accompanied by audio glitches, followed by Firefox crashing. This seems to happen more often if I have a Youtube video playing while I play the game. Also happened once with Ventrilo running and not Firefox running.

Could this be the video drivers crashing? I recently bought a new card, however this problem happened before I bought the new card, so my card is not to blame. I ran Prime95 for 16 hrs with no errors. I am starting to think this is a problem with the drivers and/or StarCraft II. Can video or audio drivers cause this problem? It's very frustrating.

Any ideas would be very appreciated.
