My PC freezes during games

During games and sometimes videos my screen will freeze and the audio will keep going although distorted. The only way so fix it is to hold the power button for 5 seconds and restart my computer. I have checked my temps and they are all fine.

CPU: AMD FX 6300
GPU: MSI GTX 660
RAM: 2x4 gb of kingston hyperx
MOBO: Asrock 970 extreme
PSU: Corsair cx500
Hard Drive: WD Blue 1TB
Window 8.1 preveiw
I am using the latest drivers for 8.1.
Any ideas on what's causing this to crash?

    Sounds like a heat problem. Check the heatsink on the CPU and make sure that there is enough thermal paste.
  2. ^^^this and is your card overclocked and is your cpu oveclocked?

    I found out what is is. It turns out it was my wireless network card. I started using Ethernet and it stopped. Used WiFi and it started again. I'm 99.921735% sure that was the problem. Either way now it's fixed.
