XFX GTS 250 1 GB

hope you can help me out here:

just a bought an, XFX GTS 250 1 GB the new Core Edition and installed on albatron 680i LT SLI mobo, the problem is this... sometime when I am either playing games or watching movies the PC just shuts down without warning like u pulled the plug out of the socket
I have guessed that it is a PSU problem so I have change to a new 600W PSU (EZ Cooler) but still the damn same problem
please help me any suggestions will be highly appreciated . below are the specs:

CPU: Q6700
RAM: DDR 2 800M Kingstons 2X2GB
VGA: XFX GTS 250 Core Edition 1 GB
MB: Albatron Nvidia 680i LT SLI
PSU: EZ Cooler 600W

  1. Hello: It could be

    1)bad memory

    2) Faulty power supplies, or PSU not supplying enough juice to the computer

    3) computer overheated (Bad Cooling)

    4) Cpu Fan or CPU not working properly

    5) CPU or Video Overclocked

    6) Cable to the HDD Broken or need Resetting

    7) Trojan


    Try to strip the PC down to the minimum, so CPU, 1 stick of RAM and
    a graphics card. Nothing else - no sound, no network card etc. Just the
    basics , Then see if it does the same thing again
