If the system systematically shuts down whenever you put high load on CPU+GPU at the same time but works fine when each gets heavily loaded separately, it could be that one of your power rail is going too far out of spec under heavy load and causing an under/over-voltage lock-out that shuts down the system.

The solution would be to replace the power supply. If it is the micro tower version, most any reputable ~300W ATX PSU should work, if it is the slim version then you will pretty much be limited to getting a used one (~$20 on Ebay) or refurbished one from Dell (~$46) here
