EVGA GTX 560ti Crashes computer with Pink/Green/Blue display

Just built my first computer a few weeks ago and i've come across a very annoying problem. I've noticed that whenever I try playing games such as The Sims 3 or Sleeping Dogs my computer will freeze up, making a repeating sound and leaving the display a solid color; usually pink, green, or blue. I can't do anything else other than restart my computer at that point. I'm able to run games like l4d2, Team Fortress 2 and Vindictus at max settings for hours on end, yet for those two games I can only play them for 5 minutes before they crash the computer. Any possible solutions to this problem i'm having?

it sounds like a DOA GPU... seems like the memory is corrupted or something...

A video I recorded earlier today, so you can visually see what happens to my computer when I run these games.

My specs, if that makes any difference as well.

If some games work and some do not, you have a software problem somewhere.

Try updating your video drivers and check for any updates for the games you are playing.

Finally figured it out. My power supply was going nuts whenever I was playing these games, it would make these crackly popping sounds and the led would get extremely bright before crashing. I just never noticed cause my headphones were on. Tested out my computer on my friends power supply and I had no problems at all. I was able to run Sleeping Dogs past the point where the game would crash and then some. Not going to be buying a Rosewill power supply any time soon. Thanks for the help.
