Haha, okay, my bad. Well, I was posting both statistics because I am used to fahrenheit, but seeing as celcius was brought up I figured most of you would be more used to it. So my temps should be okay, meaning this obviously has to be a power issue. So how can I rule out whether it is the Video Card or the PSU aside from testing the Video Card in another computer or doing anything ridiculous?

You can try using Furmark. It stress just the gpu.
FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net

See what happens.

If you watch your temps and it pops off, youre most lkely power.

Then you might as well try another psu.

Okay, previously I tried FurMark and it instantly crashed no matter what test. Right now I seem to be playing ArmA 2 fine, I'll se how long this holds off.

Spoke to soon, I eventually crashed after several explosions went off, oddly enough it withstood wayyyy more than usual.

Does anyone know if gpu-z also records load??

\You might want to look into that, as it may glog your load, woohoo it does, and after you crasdh, you can see wshat load youre at.

If youre running 10% load fine, and 100% load crash.. its probably psu not giving up.

Download TechPowerUp GPU-Z v0.5.4 | techPowerUp

Alrighty sir, thanks again for contributing time to helping me get to the bottom of this, I shall run GPU-Z and see about these loads.

Okay, having not been on my computer while at work, I left it on. As soon as I booted up say ArmA 2, it crashed instantly, however I did recover the logs, if you can make anything of it.

I'm afraid Ill have to link you to a download of the txt file, as copying and pasting it over directly jacks up the format and makes it nearly unreadable.

Does that even tell you anything

The thing is, that log shows 0% load, and you get a flat out shutdown.

So it's the power supply?

I just realized I double posted last night, my mistake, I got caught up in something else and forgot I even sent the last reply.

Hate to bump this topic up, but I was just playing Team Fortress 2, and out of nowhere my computer froze, and then had a blue screen. I didn't get the error, but could this be the same issue?

If your PSU is struggling, you can get a BSOD as it can't supply enough voltage/amperage when required, or it could be corrupted drivers/system files from the flat out shut down. Continue to do this, and youll cause serious damage.
