Computer shuts down during games and stress tests [HELP]

Hello everyone.
Im having this frustrating issue with my machine. Everytime i run CSGO or other game the PC just shuts down before it even heatup. Is like 10sec after the game is starts. I serchead about it and people told me to run PRIME95 to find out how my machine was crashing but as soon as I start the test the pc crashes the exact same way. I've also used speed fan to monitor the temperature and is all fine, all fans are working properly and the pc is clean as fuck. The computer is running every program just like before, it only crashes when I try to play games. so:
-PC runs normally, only crashes when playing games or stress testing;
-PC is not overheating;
-Every program is running normally, the machine starts properly without error messages;
-It just shuts down, no warning, blue screen, black screen what so ever. I have to start it up again manually;
-All drivers and windows are up to date, i even tried to use Restauration Points but it didnt work.

My specs:
-CPU: AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six Core
-Chipset: AMD Radeon R9 200 Series
-Motherboard GYGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3
-Grapich Card: VGA Sapphire ATI Radeon R9 270X 2GB DUAL X OC GDDR5 BOOST PCI-Express - 11217-01-20G
-PSU: Real PowerX 500W-PX500 Bivolt

This is the first and only system that i've built myself, though is running without any problem for more than 2 years I really don't understand everything about it yet (im a noob!).

Id like to thank in advance for anyone who tries to help :) (sorry for bad english!)

  1. Sounds typical of a PSU problem, what make and model is it?
  2. I find it strange that when listing specs, the most important part being the PSU is often left out.
  3. What PSU?
    Are you overclocking CPU?
    GPU: Sapphire ????? That is a brand, not a model. Need both to actually be fully useful.
  4. Specs updated.

    So now you can find the problem i assume...
  6. Real Power ---- Real Power to fry all parts due to sh** quality.

    This PSU can not handle 500w at all, and it cant even handle the load your 270 is putting on it so your system shuts down.
    Best advice would be to leave your PC off until you can replace this ticking time bomb.

    I am afraid boosted is probably right. The psu has probably deteriorated over the years and is no long up to the task.
