GPU-Z for graphics monitoring and try realtemp for the the cpu. Set them to log a file, play a game and check the temperatures after VIA the log files to rule out over heating. What do you have for a power supply?

sudden power drops is usually a temperature safety cut-off or your PSU is starting to die. Seems your temps are fine, I would try a different PSU and see if it fixes it.
