Computer shutting self down

So I just installed a new PSU (a Corsair 650 GS) because my previous one burned out. My computer seems to be working fine, until/unless I play any games. Twice now in the past couple days, my computer has shut down mid-match during a game of League of Legends (not really a graphics-intensive game). I assume the problem has something to do with the new PSU, but not sure what. I have heard Corsair is a reliable, top-notch company, so not sure why there is a problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

It could as well be damage on your motherboard or GPU either from the old PSU dying or maybe caused it.

It doesn't have any issues running multiple other programs, streaming music or video, etc. Also, not sure how much this means, but the motherboard itself did not have any visible damage (all the capacitors appeared fine, whereas the one in the power supply looked like burst batteries).

Either a PSU issue or a GPU issue then. Can you try the GPU in a different computer and see if it runs fine?
