Newer computer having random shutdown and restart issues
I recently bought a desktop pc from ibuypower about 2 months ago. About a month ago my pc was randomly shutting down/restarting out of nowhere. It is completely random and would go off a couple times a day or would be fine for hours.
Sometimes it would be while i was playing games and others while i was just browsing on the internet and doing little to nothing.
My question being can this happen because of the cables im using with my monitors, the gpu itself, or the psu? Im just out of ideas to what could cause it.
Here are my system specs: Mobo - Gigabyte GA- B75M-HP3 CPU - i7 3770 Ram- 16GB ddr3 Gpu - XFX R7970 3GB 120gb SSD 1 TB HDD Monitors - 2 x BenQ gl2450 (one hooked up with dvi to hdmi and the other with dvi to dvi.)

Alright, I will download that. Whats to hot that could cause that problem? And if that is the cause, could it be a simple fix? Thanks for all your help as well.
The CPU could be getting too hot
Well im running some games while realtemp is up to see what im getting. As of right now its hitting between 40-50°c
Ok well heres an update, after about ten minutes of playing a game it shut off and it hit close to 60° c and then it rebooted on me. As far as im aware 60° c isnt that bad and it shouldnt be the cause, correct?
That's fine. Has your computer restarted here recently? Have you looked into updating your BIOS?
60C is getting a little high
Well i tried running a couple games to see if it was a specific game causing the problem. I believe its a specific game. I ran the witcher 2 and a couple other steam games with high settings and all that just fine barely hitting 50°c.
I run World of Warcraft though and it spikes much higher and then causes the restart. So i guess the game itself is just not cooperating for some odd reason. It hasnt had a restart unless wow is open, whether it be in the background or me actually playing. Earlier i said it was random, but come to think of it WoW was always involved.
