Default Computer Keeps Shutting Down?(Or goes into a standby and hangs)?

I have a AMD 3400+, on a Gigabyte motherboard. Running 2 Kingston 512 ram chips and a ATI raedon 8500 128 video card. I just recently upgraded an old computer and the only old thing in this new comp is the hardrives and video card.

When my computer is either: 1. Under heavy load, or 2. Is running for more then a few hours. It just randomly Shuts down. I still hear the fans and stuff running though so its more like its going into a standby and then hanging. I don't see how it can go into standby though since most of the times that i have seen the computer do this, i have either been browsing the web or playing a game. I also know the CPU isn't getting hot since i have been using easytune4 to watch the CPU temp. It hasn't gotten over 55c. The power supply in my case is 500w.

faulty power supply or faulty ram try mem test 86 if it shows the ram with no errors you have a faulty power supply
