Default Microphone stops working

If I am playing a game while on Vent (games are WoW and Warcraft III) my mic tends to stop working after a few minutes. After that, when I talk, people only hear silence, or a highly annoying skipping sound. Rebooting fixes it, but that's rarely an option if I'm in the middle of something important.

One time, Command-M (changing fullscreen to window mode) did fix my mic, but I haven't been able to reproduce that effect since.

I have a USB headset, it is a Sony UAB-260 headset. I have a feeling that the USB headset is a problem, but as far as I know my computer doesn't have a microphone plug in built in (Power Mac G5, older one). Is there any USB headsets that are guaranteed to work? Or am I going to have to try to get a new sound card?
