Sound Crackling, Visual Lag, Glitches in and out of Conversations

Hello everyone! I'm having a problem with once I start up the game, it will be fine for about 10 minutes, then the sound will crackle and will start lagging then I have to alt tab out for a minute and come back in for 2 or 3 minutes then back out, or can just try and play through the lag, but if its lagging in a conversation when it ends I will just see my character and the when I move its just the screen moving.

I've tried different drivers for a bunch of different things, I've also run a latency checker which suggests its a driver but have disabled a ton of drivers to no avail. This happens in a lot of games and mine internet latency is fine. This is really frustrating and makes the game almost unplayable for me!!!
