The title kinda says it. PC restarting when im gaming anything, league of legends, cod 6, borderlands 2 and probably more, i have not tried other ones.
PC just shuts down instantly whenever it feels like it and starts up again. Sometimes it happens 2mins after i launch the game sometimes 2hours in.

Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 Motherboard (Socket 1155, ATX, DDR3, USB 3.0, HDMI, Bluetooth Module
Intel Sandybridge i5-2500K Unlocked Core i5 Quad-Core Processor (3.30GHz, 6MB Cache, Socket 1155)
Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Two Module Kit
Samsung F3 HD103SJ 1TB internal Hard Drive SATAII 32MB Cache 7200RPM – OEM
Crucial CT128M4SSD2 128GB M4 SSD
Asus 1GB GeForce GTX 560TI DirectCUII PCI-E Graphics Card
LG BH10LS38.AUAR 10x Internal BD-RW Retail Kit
Logitech Wireless Combo MK520

Unfortunately, the PSU is the most likely culprit. Can you borrow one from another machine or a friend?

If you are talking about the PSU being faulty then that is possibly the case, and could be the issue there

If you are saying that its not enough Wattage, this is what I have to say :

WHAT?!?!? That PSU is fantastic! You could run two GTX 680's with that PSU! Are you crazy! wasmdkasdm;asd

It was the first. You might even be able to run 3 with Molex>PCIe adapters.
