Default Computer Randomly Restarting

Hello Everyone,

So at the moment my PC tends to be restarting randomly. I'll be in the middle of something and it will just turn off, then turn back on. I have no idea why it's happening. A couple of times I have completely shut it down and when I turn it back on it tries to boot up but then stops. So all the fans/lights of my PC will go on for a second, then they will all turn off and stop. It does this over and over until I unplug it from the wall, or until it manages to boot up.

My computer specs are as follows:

Intel i5 3570K
8GB G.Skill RAM
GTX 650 Ti OC
SanDisk Extreme 120GB SSD
1TB Seagate HDD
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
Thermaltake Starcraft Case
BenQ GL2440 24" LED Monitor
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

I can provide extra information if needed. Please help!

Thanks,
Gun

It's a GS600, 600W PSU.

This morning I can't manage to turn it on! All the fans go on for about half a second, then they all turn off. Then it repeats; they all go on, there's a little noise, then all the fans stop. It's like it's trying to restart but there's something stopping it.
