The problem you're having isn't going to be fixed in a few hours, not unless you get a faster processor.
I have Cubase and other musical tools too, and the reason you're having this problem all of a sudden sounds like you're doing something that is using an instrument that requires a lot of processing to make it sound correctly.
I know the signs... You already mentioned that the MP3 files play ok, .. and that's because they're already converted in the format for your computer to play, without the crackling and distortions. Here's another thing you can do to tell.
If your music is complete... save it as an MP3 file,,, then play it whatever you have. If you still here the distortions, then it's a processing problem (computer too slow) .... and if you don't here the distortion then you know that you are using an instrument that is causing this.
Either way,, by your specs,,,,, you'll have more problems... and it's NOT the program... upgrade your computer.
