My Computer Crashes Everytime I Play a Game

Everytime I play a video game my computer shuts off after a few minutes of playing.
Some games seem to take a while, such as Tropico 5. I can play Tropico 5 for hours and then it'll crash. Most games only take a few minutes. For instance, WarThunder takes around the same time as Watch_Dogs, which takes about 10 minutes.

It doesn't say that the computer is overheating or anything.
It just shuts off out of no where.
I updated my video drivers and it said my sound card drivers were up to date so I don't know what's the problem.

Here are my specs:
Operating System: Windows 8.1 64-bit (6.3, Build 9600)
Processor: AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor (6 CPUs), ~3.5 GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
Harddrive Space: 1.43 TB free of 1.81 TB

    I've already had one side of the case open. It doesn't really help.
  4. sounds a bit like your running out of power, how many watts is your PSU and do you have anything overclocked?

    It says it doesn't support my processor. My processor is in the OP.
  9. Hello... Start Task Manager- Performance-Resource Monitor- CPU
    Are any of your Cores parked in Windows? The Graphics on the right side will display text next to the CPU#.

    CPU 4 and 5 become parked every few seconds it seems. The rest don't seem to be parked.
