For over a month my PC has been freezing, completely randomly while playing games, watching movies, or even doing completely nothing. In game I'll be at a constant max fps (60) at the highest settings, then my fps drops to 0 and i freeze, for a good 10-15 seconds, which is unbelievably frustrating when playing games. This happens roughly once every 2 hours or so. This is not a problem with my internet connection. I don't think i should be having any problems running the games i play flawlessly at high setting with my set up. Windows and drivers are up to date. I checked my background programs and didn't see anything out of the ordinary. I ran a FurMark stress test for 15+ minutes, at 1920x1080, max MSAA, xtreme burning mode, displacement mapping, and post fx. Everything was perfectly fine, no freezes. My GPU wouldn't go over ~75°C. I'll be running memtest soon also. I disk defrag, virus scan, and malware scan almost weekly. I have no idea why this is happening so any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Do you have any programs running in the background, especially those that might need to connect to a outside server at regular intervals?

what comes to mind off the top of my head are anti-virus and firewalls, as well as any music programs. Or perhaps even malware. Have you had a look at your running processes (Ctrl+alt+del, then on the menu click processes)

Yeah, i have. No viruses or malware. I use AVG anti-virus, Lavasoft Ad-Aware and Itunes. Specifically:
AAWTray.exe
AVGIDSMonitor.exe
avgtray.exe
Itunes.exe
ItunesHelper.exe

There are a few things I would try. As the user above said monitor running processes. I would also run a chkdsk to ensure the HDD is ok. As you said a memtest is also a good idea. Try that and report back :)
