Does it start up again and remain on for another 8 - 10 minutes, or do the time intervals get shorter each time?

Ok, sounds like a power problem. I would either guess your PSU is about to die, or, like Theyoyokid303 said, you may have too much on one outlet/breaker.

i would have to agree with these guys. try plugging your pc into another outlet, if you are like me you most likely daisy chain power strips as a bad habit and a few strips down you lose power. if another outlet dosent work, then test it with another power supply.
