Or the PSU. If your system shuts down only while gaming, that's typical of power problems. Diablotek's tend to be crappy PSU's.

Or perhaps you have driver problems.

Diablowtek psu and/or gpu drivers.

^+1 to jsc. If you do not have a reliable power supply, it might be the big cause of failures you are noticing now especially for a high end system.

+1 to all who say the PSU. You could run Prime 95 to check stressing the CPU doesn't cause it to overheat to be a bit more sure
