Steam overloads PSU??

I have just built a PC for my Son. Everything seems to work fine until he goes to play Team Fortress 2 on Steam. The Motherboard then resets, and restarts the PC. The error message then stats this is an overload issue with the PSU. The PSU is an Artic Blue 750w / 850w type. Is this really at fault? It works fine for normal PC functions. I read somwhere that it could be the Bios on the Motherboard (Asus M5A78L-M-USB3). I upgraded this to a new version (1503). The problem is still there.
Just for reference the Motherboard has an AMD FX 8150 8 core 3.6Ghz processor and 8GB RAM on it. Has anyone else seen this before, or knows whats going on?
Thanks In Advance.

  1. sounds like you arent getting enough power to your gpu when it is in use. this would be a problem with the psu.

    its rating is high enough, could be faulty though.
