It sounds like either a power supply issue or a motherboard issue. I had a PC a few years ago that did this. It turned out it was the motherboard. If you have a spare PSU, swap it out and see if it still happens. Also, check your event viewer and see if anything looks wrong, but in situations like this, there generally isn't time to log anything before shutting down.

Get a new power supply from a good brand. Antec, Thermaltake, Corsair, PC Power and Cooling, etc... First thing to do, based on the cheap power supply you are using, it's more likely that than anything else.

Since this is new, return that power supply for a refund.
