Hey,I'm having a really annoying issue with my new computer.It reboots after probably 15-20 min of gameplay in pretty much every game (recent ones).
This is my rig:

i7 2600K no OC yet.
Gigabyte HD6950 2GB no OC or flashing.
Asus P8P67-M.
4x2GB Gskill Ripjaws 1333.

Coolermaster GX650W.

Windows 7 64bit.

and a Coolermaster V8 heatsink for the processor.

I know it could be a number of things,but my main concern is probably the PSU.
It just reboots,no BSOD or temperature warnings.
I've checked the CPU and GPU temps and they stay pretty low (GPU: around 50 celsius and CPU around 38).

By the way,I have the latest drivers.

What do you guys think?

Yep, probably the PSU.

It could be the onboard sound card. Try disabling it in the BIOS or Device Manager.
