Random fps drop please help!

I have recently got a PC with these specs;

CPU: AMD FX 6100 Black Edition


CPU Cooler: Xigmatek Loki SDS963


Operating System: Microsoft® Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit


Motherboard: Asus M5A78L-M/USB3


RAM: 8GB DDR3 1333mhz (2x4GB)


Hard Drive: 1TB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s


Optical Drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA


Graphics card: NEW! AMD Radeon HD 7770 1GB


Sound card: Onboard 7.1 Audio


Case: Zalman Z11 Plus


PSU: 500W Xigmatek

and i have only 1 issue with it i get random fps drops but not freezes. I will be playing BF3 and all of a sudden my fraps will read 1 fps, it then returns to 40 or so and stays there until it freezes again. any advice would be great. :)
