Solved

PC turns off while playing games.

First i would like to say im no computer expert, actually im not even decent but

i have a problem, that's been bugging me for quite a while now...

My computer turns off random points in time while playing most games.
I've heard from some people my computer might be overheating, and i do want to believe that but im just not sure because my GPU is burning hot even when not playing anything...

I am using SpeedFan to monitor my computer's heating which is working quite well, but i have noticed this. http://prntscr.com/c2wfwz
Does this mean the other two aren't working? I have my computer opened up, and a fan blowing into it as well as the fans inside the computer and it's still overheating.

Here are my computer specs
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6300 @ 1.86GHz (2 CPUs), ~1.9GHz
4 RAM (3.81 usable)
ATI Radeon HD 3600 Series

Also here's how it's working averagely, i actually took that picture while writing this.

    Hm, i don't know if this is what you asked for, or if there's any special way of identifying one but here's what i made out of it:

    LITEON
    REV:01
    BO771
    CRU: PN 41n3449
    CPU OK

    Sorry if this isn't what you asked for.
    "Made in China" stands out.

    A POS PSU it looks like: http://www.ebay.com/itm/IBM-Lenovo-LiteOn-PS-5311-7MWA-ROHS-41N3451-41N3449-ATX-Power-Supply-Unit-PSU-/221816406764

    I'd suspect that, as when your computer tries to draw more power, the PSU can't provide it because it's garbage and thus turns off.
