Have you checked your CPU or GPU temps? If they're reaching into the 90s Celsius, chances are, that's the cause. Another cause could be the PSU being insufficient to handle the 250.

At 12 amps, a 550W PSU shouldn't have problems. Are you overclocking? Is Windows bring up the "Windows did not start normally" or "Your computer was shut down to protect itself..." messages? Have you tried updating your drivers? Does your computer turn off on its own outside gaming or while playing another game?

A GeForce 250 is not a modern video card. You have heat problems,
