So when i play CS:GO, normally every game ill have a lag spike , Montior sometimes go's black and then re-opens , other times the game freezes and does the noise overlay over and over, so i have to esc to my desktop and click on the game in the tray and it comes back up and works fine.
sometimes i have noticed the driver say its crashed, other times i see the ram hit a lag spike of 100% at the exzact time.
1. Nvidia Drivers upto date
2. Ram hits 100% running 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz (2x4GB )
(Going to try x2 8GB , just incase it needs more)
Anyone else having this issue?

Yeah, first thing I would do is get more ram. You have win7, so I'm assuming it's 64 bit, and 64 bit machines have a tendency to crash applications when they run out of ram, and 64 bit machines are also much more volatile with their ram use than 32 bit . Also, how much Vram does your graphics card have? If it's only like 1gb, that could also be a source of the issue, but very unlikely as far as I know. Here are some other things you can try:
1) check for windows updates
2) watch your lan use during the game and see if your internet use also goes max (max for your internet plan, not your lan. I.e. if you're getting 0.5gb used during a crash, and your plan is 0.5gb/s, that could also crash CS) during lag spikes. If that happens, you may need a better internet plan from your ISP. There are many free programs that allow you to do this
3) I can't really suggest anything else-the rig you have should run this fine. Very fine. My theory is it's the ram.
I have upgraded the Ram to 8GBx2 1600Mhz, Game ran fine for a week, then i got it last night again, and also a PC freeze during gameplay, so bad that i had to restart the PC.
Every other game works fine.
Also the GTX780 has 3GB
