So this has been affecting me for a few months but it recently got bad. What happens is whenever I do something in the game for the first time the game freezes for a second or two and the audio loops for a second or two. By something new I mean when I do something for the first time that day. It includes me pressing escape, changing weapons, etc. If you need anymore information I'll try to provide it.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz
16384MB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti

This is brought up fairly frequently but the usual suspects are over heating of the GPU or a bad PSU. What's the event logs for Windows say when this happens?

I'll have to get back to you on that one. Where do I go to find the event logs?

Also, how do I tell if my PSU is bad?

My GPU temp:

value was 37 °C (96 °F)
Min was 32 °C (89 °F)
Max was 79 °C (174 °F)

My PSU is a P8Z77-V LK.

On another note, I was checking my FPS while I was playing and I noticed it was jumping around from being green (about 120~) to being in the red (I couldn't get a number because it jumped back too quick). I also noticed it jumping into the yellow often. These are my graphic settings: http://imgur.com/Zw6XxH6

After adjusting my graphics settings down to the lowest possible option:

value was 37 °C (96 °F)
Min was 37 °C (96 °F)
Max was 60 °C (140 °F)

When's the last time you opened up your computer and dusted it? 79 celsius is quite a high maximum. Also, the thing you listed as your PSU is actually your motherboard.

How can you not like a girl who is 26 but look 13?

Also, derp. OCZ ZT Series 550W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Bronze is my PSU.

'That max temp is terrible. Without jumping to conclusions, it is possible you have bad or brittle thermal paste that needs to be replaced. It could certainly explain intermittently crashing, though that isn't something I'd jump straight to unless you are comfortable with taking apart your GPU's plastic to check.

Any event log entries when it crashed?

I'm looking again Orange.

It seems I deleted them when I was cleaning up my computer. The crashes usually happen when I'm loading a map, or I've alt-tabbed and I try and tab back in and it then black screens so I have to Ctrl-Alt-Delete and close the program because it's not-responding.

OK, hopefully it is just a memory address failure instead though unlikely.

Crash again and report back with the logs! :)

Look at it from my perspective. I can give you a list of what I think are possibilities but I can't stand in-front of your computer to troubleshoot and I can't look at your hardware. A graphic driver crash in the logs narrows things down but then so do a multitude of other things.

it could be gpu core clock problems like i think i used to have. you'd need to get a monitoring software like msi afterburner with logging enabled to see whats going on. also, make sure video card drivers are up to date obviously.

No. Just save your logs and attach them. Should be to the right where it says Save All Event Logs or whatever. Also give me the time CS:GO crashed, or an approximate time.
