Default Random Computer SHut Downs

Lately While i have been playing a game, my computer has been randomly turning off, no prompting messages, no asking if i want to shut down, just complete shut down(like when your power goes out and it just turns straight off). The game i am playing is World Of Warcraft, if that helps or has any effect to anyone. Anyone know what the problem may be? thanks in advance.

Could be an overheating issue. Download Everest Home edition and if your temps at idle are higher than 50C you have a problem.
