  1. power supply? under load graphics card require more watts. makes me wonder if you have enough power reaching them/entire system
  2. Jason is write. Check you PSU make sure its good one, meaning a good brand
    you should have at least 620 watts.
    also check your temps. might be shutting down due to heat.
  3. Grab a copy of HWMonitor and check your CPU and GPU temps.
  4. the PC rebooting or shutting down is a sign of afailing psu. Funny - you mentioned everything in your system config EXCEPT the PSU. :) i hope it was a typo and how many HDD's are your running as well as the total capacity?
