Here is what my rig consists of.
CPU: Intel I3 2120
GC: Geforce GTX760 EVGA Superclocked 2gb
Ram:8gb
PSU:Silverstone Strider 500w Gold 80 plus
The reason I ask is while playing a game I can play for like 5-10 min and then my pc will shut down and restart. Any help would be greatly appreciated

A GeForce GTX 760 needs at least 30 amps on the 12v rail and a 500 watt power supply.

Your PSU has 34 amps on the 12v rail and the proper power connections , you are good to go with that power supply and the 760.
