I recently had a custom PC built and had a wireless card put into it. The only online game I have installed so far is CS:GO. Whenever I play, every 3-5 minutes my ping/ms will jump from 60 to about 300 for 1-2 seconds then come back down. I'm not sure what the problem is, and I really want to fix this. I have fairly good internet speeds. (35 upload, 5 download.) If anyone could provide some help, it would be greatly appreciated!

Have you tried to connect a LAN cable to check if your wireless connection is the problem?
Since it's a new PC, have you installed all hundreds of Windows updates (including the optional ones which might include connection improvements and newer firmware)?
