May be overheating. You may want to check if theres any dust built up inside your case.

I see you have a rosewill 850 psu. I had a rosewill psu at one point too; and while you have sufficient wattage; it may be that it is failing intermittently.

Cheaper PSU's, such as those manufactured by Rosewill, have a tendency to die unnaturally young. if you have another PSU lieing around or in another computer that can power your system; try using that.

Run Everest Home Edition (google to find) and run a report. Post the report here so we can look at your temperatures. It could easily also be that.

Have you checked the heatsinc, take the CPU FAN OFF and clean between the panels, if its not that then you should run your AV & spyware programs to see if you have been infected, if you think its you PSU etc there is a free program you can run that tests the wattage usage you have, then you can compare that to you PSU wattage capacity http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculator.jsp

He checked his temps so I'm going to guess its the PSU.

So this could be the problem. The minimum requirement is a 350 and you have a 350. It is probably shutting off during times of slightly increased power demand. Do you have any way of obtaining a slightly higher wattage psu for just a short while?
