My computer will randomly freeze and disconnect from the internet for about 3 minutes at a time. The freezes can be simply fixed by unplugging and plugging in my wireless adapter, or all peripherals including the adapter go unresponsive. Even when doing the earlier mentioned process with the adapter, it repeatedly disconnects for the full 3 (roughly) minutes. This happened a few times after I first built the PC but has steadily increased in frequency, it also becomes significantly worse when trying to download games. Sometimes in addition to the internet disconnects, I will be unable to interact with any programs and the system will 'catch-up' after the 3 or so minutes has passed. There is some variation in all of the stated activity. My computer specs are as follows, any and all help is appreciated!

Specs:
AMD FX-4100 Zambezi Quad-Core 3.6GHz
GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W
EVGA 02G-P4-3658-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST SuperClocked 2GB 192-bit GDDR5

Test your system first.
For RAM :Use memtest to test the RAM, run it at least 5 passes
For HDD: manufacturer disk check utility or via a linux live cd to see if you have smart errors.

I ran the HDD and there were no smart errors, nothing seemed to come of the memtest after 2 passes, but I can try 5 if you'd think that'd help. Also, my screen went wack in a game and all the colors were inverted and super pixelated.
I'm also getting really bad delay in games and zig zagging around, but the internet works fine on other computers and mobiles.
