The mobo could be shorting to the mobo tra. This happened to me and the mobo was the problem. When you play games, your computer heats up, and the mobo expands and so does the tray, if the touch, it'll short, and your comp will go into standby or shut down so it won't fry. Try using longer screws to mount the mobo. It could also be overheating. Also, I have seen Ram cause this problem.

I don't know how a graphics card could shut the system down tho, do you have any fans or cooling devices?

Did you use standoffs? Or a motherboard tray?

OOOh, that cold be the problem, download Lavasoft EVEREST, and check your temps. If it's overheating these things can happen. But i still think it could be the motherboard shorting to the case.

your cpu and mobo look very hot. Especially the mobo. Get some case fans and air flow through that case.
