I recently built my first pc with windows 8 for gaming. The build went great, i updated all my BIOS and drivers and then downloaded Skyrim. After playing for about 30 minutes my pc restarted. It continues to do that, sometimes i can play for an hour, sometimes a couple minutes. I downloaded SpeedFan to monitor my temps. My gpu fan runs at 30% and cpu fan runs at 45%.
The highest temp ive ever seen while playing skyrim was 46C gpu temp and 32C cpu temp.
HELPP!!! what could the problem be?

Here is my part list:
CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 750K 3.4GHz Quad-Core
Motherboard: ASRock FM2A75 Pro4-M Micro ATX FM2
Memory: Wintec Value 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1333
Storage: Toshiba 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM
Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB
Power Supply: Corsair 430W ATX12V

  1. I would guess and say it is a PSU problem with insufficient wattage.

    do you know any programs that check wattage? Do i need a more powerful psu?
