My friend just put together a computer and it keeps randomly shutting down on him. What's wrong?? It's completely random.

Here's the specs:

Windows 7
Intel i7 920
Motherboard: MSI X58 Pro-E
6gb of RAM 1333mhz
ATI 5670 512mb Graphic Card
500 watt power supply

Correct if I'm wrong but it seems your power supply is slightly on the lower side - can you provide full specs including hard drives, optical, etc?

It could also be an overheating problem - make sure the heatsink and "grease", if you will, are properly applied to the processor.
