Default Restarting Problem

Hello forum!

I am having trouble with a recent build, when I started to play a game with graphics turned moderatly up I noticed the Video Card was very hot to the touch by the power connectors at the back and then suddenly the computer restarted and the post screen stated that my power supply was unstable and that is why it shut down. Also I was watching a Replay from game informer when I decided to goto sleep and figured I would listen to it while I lay in bed. Well when I woke up the computer seemed to have restarted itself but was in windows not at the error post screen. Any idea on if the PSU is just garbage any other possibilitys?? am at a loss and frustrated.

I'd listen to your computer. If it says something is wrong with your PSU, 99% of the time, it is right.

I'm not sure about Diablotek, but that sounds like a crappy one.
