I'm sorry guys, new here. Not quite sure where to post. But I've asked many people about my problem and they seem to have no idea what is going on with my computer.
I'll be playing Counter Strike GO and my game will stutter for about 5 seconds everyone 15-30 minutes but I can still hear people talk, their sentences don't get interrupted but my gameplay does. I'll rubber band back to the spot I started stuttering at, as you can imagine this gets me killed in CS and other games a lot and causes unnecessary deaths and losses. I had my friend build my computer for me, I'm not too computer savy in the hardware section of things.. But I can tell you what's inside my computer and the specs.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 8.00 GB
Graphics Card: ASUS Radeon 7870 Series
Motherboard: ASRock z77 extreme 4
Please if I posted in the incorrect forum tell me and I'll post this elsewhere, thank you very much for your time.
Edit: Forgot to say it's not just my games that freeze up. I have 2 monitors and I usually have a stream open on my 2nd monitor and it'll freeze as well. Thanks everyone
