Default Computer Shutdown Issue

Hey there (new to the forums).

I am having an issue playing games (mostly higher end games BC2 and the like) I can generally play them for 5 or so mins before computer shuts down. In games such as rift this will not happen until there are many things going on.

I recently purchased some upgrades for PC and had issues with overheating on my CPU but got that replace and now its fine, but I still getting crashes.

Specs:

Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 Motherboard
AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition CPU
8GB Corsair RAM
650W PSU
GTX275 GPU Leadtek
2x 19" ViewSonic Monitors


The only thing I can think of is that maybe the PSU isn't sufficient enough to support this setup.

Any help would be much appreciated cheers.

Default Re: Computer Shutdown Issue

What is the brand name and model number of your power supply? A 650w PS should be enough if it's a quality unit built by a reliable manufacturer.
