I had the same problem as you I believe. Although I'm a noob I worked out my problem was with the network drivers.
while effortlesly looking for a w7 driver and trying to install it, I noticed I didn't have these problems playing games when I used my integrated GPU instead of my Nvidia driver... so this kinda baffled me, however none of the nvidia driver versions work for me (266.58 -too old-, 285,62 -crashes-, 295.73, 306.97, 310.70 -lagspikes-) I have Optimus with an integrated intel and nvidia geforce GT 425M
So im looking back to my network drivers; maybe there's something wrong between the nvidia & network drivers?
but I just can't seem to: a) find the right drivers b) uninstall the current drivers c) install the downloaded driver... im not a total nab, I have no problems with installing/uninstalling nvidia or other drivers. these are my drivers under the network adapter tab:
Qualcomm Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30)
Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC
So Ill try finding a w7 driver for this Realtek driver?

I have noticed this on my Windows 8 water cooling machine, it started with online and then single player games and the video just freezes for 2 seconds at some times. I did upgrade the Nvidia card driver just before xmas and Windows 8 did not do this before.
For me it is not a network issue it was video lag and in all these years I have never seen this before and I thought some went wrong with my video card. I have not fixed this yet as it is sporadic but I think its the new video drivers.
