Computer Freezes - Please Help!

I'm not sure where to post this, but I guess I will put it in in Windows 8, because that is my OS.
Every once in a while my PC will just freeze up, and nothing at all will work. My only option is to hold down the power to shut it off. Not sure if it's something with the hardware or something to do with Windows. I could really use some help locating the problem, though.

My build:
CPU: i7 3770
RAM: 8gb G.Skill Ripjaws
Mobo: ASUS P8Z77-V LK
PSU: 750W forget model
GPU: GTX 465

Please help
