Annoying background noise when playing mp3s

Sound is working, but I've noticed an annoying background noise when playing movies/mp3s etc. etc.
This forces me to lower the master volume in the gnome-mixer to almost zero and raise the volume on my speakers to max, but you can still hear a faint noise.
I have an integrated soundcard on an nForce2 board running nvidia's own kernel sound-module.
Any ideas as to what causes the noise?
