Need more info - does the system just turn off, or do you get the blue screen of death? also is this a new build, or did you just upgrade the video card?

First check your temperature readings inside the BIOS. Let the PC run at idle for at least 10 minutes and watch your CPU temp. The power supply could be doing exactly what it is supposed to be doing by triggering a shutdown (over-current/overvoltage protection) protecting the rest of your hardware.

Just a strait shut off would lead me to also think it's an overheating problem. Check your temps at idle and load 8)
