The green audio jack (speakers out) produces erratic sound quality.

Sometimes the sound is normal, but sometimes it is faint. It goes in and out of these phases intermittently.

I can control the quality of the sound when I move the plug around slightly into the back of the case. It only requires a slight tilt of the plug to produce normal sound.

But whenever I'm gaming, the sound quality is erratic.

Do I need to have the jack replaced, or is there a less expensive way to fix this?

Hopefully I don't have to replace the motherboard?

Replacing worn out jack in MB can be expensive and not practical but something like this https://www.amazon.com/Plugable-Headphone-Microphone-Aluminum-Compatible/dp/B00NMXY2MO can be a good substitute.
