  1. Sounds like a too small or failing PSU.
  2. Best answer
    What PSU do you have. It might be that your PSU cant keep up with the higher demanding games and causes your system to shut down. Cause your temps are ok so thats why it makes me lean towards your power supply.

    COOLMAX ZU Series ZU-800B 800W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply,

    i read up a bit on it, and it appears its not the greatest of psu. not very stable/reliable.
    which psu would my build work best with?

    Seasonic PSU's and XFX PSU are really good. Here is a 850W XFX psu.

  5. I'll vouch for the XFX 850W mentioned above. I'm still using the XFX 850W Black Edition I got 4 computers builds ago. It has been a powerful, dependable PSU through several variations of CF and SLI. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207001
