Default PSU question

Hi,

Is there any way to check to see if you've got a faulty power supply? Thanks

Why? As long as everything works fine and stable there's no need to check for a faulty CPU.
You can check your PSU's voltages in your BIOS.

Heres my problem, my comp randomly reboots when i play games, and only when i play games. I just want to rule out the option that its a PSU problem and not a memory or gfx card problem. Do u think the PSU is fine? I dont really know what the voltage means in BIOS, but they all seem ok, theyre all near their suppossed values, except for the 3.3 or 3.5...its really close, like .05 away....if any of that means anything lol..

I would check your temps and memory first.
Get memtest86+ to test your memory www.memtest.org
