Is the system overclocked at all, it could be the north bridge overheating and then causing the motherboard to restart. Have you tried running the game with no sound and/or removing the sound drivers to see if this is actually the culprit.
If you want to go with the new sound card route you may be able to put the sound card in the far off third pci-e slot near the edge of the board however i would wait for confirmation from others before assuming you can put it there (pretty sure all pci-e slots, the short and long ones are the 'same' when it comes with a pci-e short sound card). It also states it has 2 PCI-E slots that support a PCI-E sound card.
