I've had a problem with my PC sometime now, you see for some reason when I'm playing any graphics demanding game (WoW, Darksiders 2, Assassin's Creed, Heroes of Newerth) my PC would randomly turn off. If I try to turn it on right back on it will turn off by itself in a couple of seconds.
If I wait 20-30 seconds and try again it will turn on again and won't turn off ever again. I'm asking if the PSU could be the problem as recently I linked a picture of my PSU on a forum post and a fellow member told me it was a CHEAP brand and even though it says it can deliver 500 W, it can only deliver a fraction of that.
Another possibility I am not ruling out is that the case is very VERY dusty inside and I don't have a very good air intake/outake due to the fact that it has only 1 fan for the outake. Whenever I play a game I have to put a fan pointing towards my case for it to stay cool.
Your thought on this?
And also, if you could recommend an ATX case with built in fans or if the problem is the PSU, I'd appreciate if you could recommend one for my specs.
