Default Computer shuts off for no reason sometimes

It only happens when im playing games though. Like when I load up a game in GTASA it just restarts out of the blue. Its also known to happen sometimes in WoW not even when im in heavily populated areas either. I also recall before when I tried to play the farcry demo it would start to load the game then my monitor would just go black but the comp was still on.

Anyways im wondering what the prob is. it cant be the temp becase its always around 27C. Im thinking I need a new power supply or mobo. I currently have a p4 2.8 on a gigabyte board(ill get the name if it helps) 1 gig of ram and a 9800 pro vidcard. Any help is appreciated thanks. Oh yeah also my PS is only like 300 watts I think

yea i think you need a new PSU.

get 450W at least, and you will be safe for future upgrade.
