PC Turns off and then on while playing games after installing new video card

I had 5830 radeon, while playing the screen would go black for 10 seconds and " display driver has stopped working and has recovered" popup appeared.

I changed the video card to gtx 760, the previous problem remains and I got a new one:
while playing PC randomly turns off and then on after 1.5-2 seconds (yes, I counted)

I tried these:

    ran memtest - no errors, took out each ram, pc still turned off
    scanned hdd for errors - none
    tested for temperature on cpu and gpu - not heating
    changed thermopaste just in case
    ran driver sweeper, reinstalled drivers
    reinstalled windows
    updated bios

NOTHING helps, i'm going crazy
my motherboard is asus p7p55lx
psu is 950w

You have ran all the usual tests so its sounds like either an issue with your power supply or your board. Sounds more like a PSU issue.
