Hey,

Sorry if its too long :D 

My pc restarts every time power fluctuates while the AC is running. My AC is on a separate line and i have installed a 8 kv stabilizer for it. Whenever i switch on my ac my pc restarts, occasionally it doesn't. Also whenever the stabilizer boosts up power during fluctuation my PC restarts, but while the ac is off it restarts very rarely.

Also my pc restarts while i play new or high graphics games like Batman arkham city, resident evil 5, assasins creed, modern warfare 2, 3, etc, the ac is switched off whenever i play games. Also my cpu heats rapidly, my gpu temp goes 80 C while playing games and around 40(i guess this is normal) in normal state.

This restart problem occurs during evening & nights only. ie after 6(i guess its bcoz most houses in my locality use more power at this time), mornings are fine, i can run ac and play games at the same time and pc restarts very rarely.

Now i want to find a solution to this restart problem, i have researched and found a few solutions but i need u guys to help me decide which solution will solve my prob as i cannot spend money on all solutions.

1. Buying a mainline stabilizer, it work around these voltages 130 - 290. My input voltage required is 220.

2. Buying a good psu as many suggested it will solve fluctuation issues. If so suggest me a good psu (my config: intel pentium core 2 quad at 2.83Ghz, 4 gb ram, Nvidia Gefore GTS450, my psu, cooling fan are the basics)

3. Cooling unit to reduce overheat while playing games, please suggest a good one for my specs.

4. any other solutions u guys suggest?

I believe my main concern is fluctuation, bcoz very rarely my pc restarts due to overheat (i take regular breaks to cool my pc)

Please help me find a solution guys and am from india so please suggest products available in my country if you can.

I had a similar situation years ago when I lived in a very old apartment building. The place still had knob and tube electrical wiring, old stuff. A quality power supply is able to compensate for fluctuations and that is how I was able to resolve my issue. Another option would be just to buy a small UPS unit that has some conditioning for the incomming power and plug your computer into that. Something small like:
