Angry My Computer randomly shutsoff! HELP!

I just purchased a AMD 64 4000+. I also run a K8U-939 motherboard with 1048 RAM. As soon as I finished putting it together I transferred my old hard drives (80Gb & 40Gb) into this computer and reinstalled Windows XP. I purchased an Okia 450w PSU. I run with NVidia GForce 5700U (soon to be an X850 XT PE). As of the last 5 days at least once a night my computer will shutdown and WILL NOT restart for a couple of attempts. It always seems to happen during BF2 or SWG. What is the deal?

Heating maybe? Or, a incorrectly installed CPU, or RAM. Incompatible RAM? Video card is maybe heating too much or CPU...

No I dont think so. I I openned the case and let a fan blow inside and cool everything. It still shut down. I was thinking PSU?

that kind of issue would either be due to overheating or power. i figure you correctly applied thermal paste and HSF to the cpu?

Define correctly? I used Articand applied it as needed, but my CPU runs at a cool 32C. From what I hear for a 4000+, that is pretty cool.

Is it possible that it may be a bad hard drive?
