I jut built a new computer with a h61 asus motherboard and a i5 3770k (3.40 ghz) and a gtx 770 with a rosewill xtreme power supply. I ha bee getting a lot of audio and video stutter when playing games or even just staring at my desktop. As I am typing this I am getting random freezes and stutters. I did check my cpu load and temp, and the temp is normal, but the load goes from 11-15% use, to about 40-90%, and nothing is open! I installed the chipset drivers and also my gpu drivers. Please help I just want to play my games :(

press Ctrl + Shift + Esc and click process to see what is using all the processing power. if it is a string of garbled letters please backup and then panic because that's Cryptolocker!
