My computer recently is shutting down without any BSOD, a sudden restart when i'm playing games and sometimes after i turn on the pc for the first time in a day. What seems to be causing these? maybe my psu is not enough? a faulty motherboard or video card? your help is highly appreciated. Thanks.

Your PSU is sufficient to power single GTX-650ti Boost, try to disassemble and assemble your PC.
And run some stress tests CPU/GPU (separately)

Yup. You should be set. Nvidia recommends a 450 PSU and you have a 550 and it's a good brand (i assume it has at least bronze certification if not better).

You should have no problems and will even have room for some light OC.

Thank you for the reply. I was researching that the psu can cover for the psu but my processor uses a recommended 120 watts. will that be enough?

Thank you for the reply. For nvidia i think so too, but for both proc and VC, will it be enough to supply my parts?

Yeah the PSU will do just fine even with the 8350. You should have absolutely no problem. If anything goes wrong than one of the parts is malfunctioning.

You're PSU is more than enough to power CPU/GPU and some OC.
I saw some people running GTX-780 and i7-4770k with 550W PSU while single GTX-780ti requires 620W PSU

Good day and thanks for the tip, now i know my psu is not the problem but my motherboard is. i got this random reboots that would not cause any BSOD, just a quick reboot. my temps are average though, it would not get past 50 degress for vid and 47 degrees for proc.

Cool reference man, btw, i seems to have an idea what seems to be the problem of my pc, Off topic from my thread, if my pc suddenly reboots without any BSOD, and my temps are fine. would it be my psu ,motherboard, or video card? it happens even if i am just browsing, or after playing a game. it is just random. Thank you for the fast reply.

Sounds like your windows or HDD gone bad, try to run other HDD with installed windows (ask HDD with installed windows from your friends) and just run your PC and look if it still causes random restarts, I had almost same problem and I found out that it was my HDD or windows problem :)

No worries! :) 
I don't really now what was the problem but I definitely know that it was a HDD or windows problem because my friend also had same issue and his PC worked fine with my HDD and after reinstalling windows in his HDD his PC stopped to make random restarts :)

Will try to use your suggestion man, btw, i just recently researched about the wattages for my hardware and i think i am confused. my VC needs a minimum of 450 watts and my proci runs at 120 watts and that is a total of 570 watts , it does not include my hdd, my LCS and other parts as well. is it possible? just a noob question though.

No, it's not possible, even if it pulls 570W from your wall socket you'll be fine because quality good PSU's can give more wattage than it's labeled power without burning itself, I have GS700 PSU and my PSU can deliver up to 780W without burning itself!

Thanks man, but there is a new update, the store that where my pc brought said that even though they try a higher psu with the same brand, still my unit randomly reboots. the HDD was fine, i don't have any idea as of now of what could be causing this.

Before you buy new PSU, try with other PSU ( you can ask PSU from your friends)

It also can also be drivers or RAM issue.
Take a look at this thread http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/57410/
It's really not hardware problem.

Hello and good day my friend. To your problem, let me ask a few questions if it's okay? here I go, does your computer parts still in warranty? if it is, try to warranty your psu , it might be faulty. if not, better send your computer to the store where you bought it and let them check/test your computer( with you being there to observe of course).

Sorry about the late reply guys. My computer now is doing fine. After a dispute with the store's tech that it was my psu, they surely did replaced it. I hope this will help everyone. My PSU was faulty because it's either too many brownouts that causes my psu to overload with on/off electricity. Maybe it's manufacturer's fault. Good day to everyone.
