Alright, I'll try to be as detailed as I can be.
I was enjoying a relaxing game of Warthunder (An air battle simulator) and listening to a friends walk through of Battlefield four with commentary. I had STEAM (Gaming distribution software + messanger) and Teamspeak three (VIOP program) open along with Microsoft word. I open a second tab after minimizing warthunder in firefox and go to another messanger. Upon doing so, I click 'chat now' and my entire computer freezes up, the audio starts looping and it didn't seem to reach a bluescreen. Even after I waited a brief few seconds to manually reset the machine.

And my Anti Virus was on, firewall on and anti exploit was on. Nothing else.
This used to happen once a year, I believe this is the second time this has happened this year alone. (The first was in January.)
Two of my friends suspect that my GPU could be dying.
The second friend believes the audio drivers could've crashed and provoked this.
The rig is from two 2008 to 2009, mind you.
Also- If this helps, the GPU Idles at 50-60c. During games, depending on the game it can range from 82c to 100c.
It rebooted smoothy and without issue afterwards.
