I would swap out the PSU. Its a very low quality one to begin with, and my guess is it would be the culprit.

To elaborate on why I suspect the PSU.. From looking around, it has all the indications of being a generic chinsy PSU, and you're running a high power video card on it, once you start playing the games, the power supply gives up and says "I can't do it"..
