Everytime I open a game or any application that puts a medium to heavy load on my PC it restarts without warning. I'm not getting any blue screens or anything. I've been experiencing all of this after my recent GPU upgrade for a GTX 650 to a GTX 760. This is my current setup.

F2A55-M/M11BB Motherboard
AMD A-Series 6700 (3.7Ghz) APU
GeForce GTX 760 GPU
Corsair CX500 PSU
Corsair H100i Liquid cooler for CPU
And 8 GB of ram

I was thinking it was something to do with not having enough power to the power supply but it was running great for the first 5 days after I upgraded. What should I do?

The CX500 is a budget power supply ,with poor capacitors , that shouldn't be stressed.

This one is made by SEASONIC best in the business.

So do you think it's the power supply? The GTX 760 says it needs at least 500W PSU to run, is it taking all 500w?

The power supply is the only weak component in your build , it would be wise to give it a quality power source.

You think that everything else should be okay but the PSU can use an upgrade? I just reset windows on it and it is still installing but it looks okay.. I won't know until i run a test on it and see if it crashes again!

You might be fine , but in the future get a decent power supply , the CX500 won't last.
