My Computer shuts down when I'm playing certain games.

Whenever I'm playing certain games (a.k.a. The Witcher 3, Fallout 4, and DOOM) my computer shuts off within 5-10 minutes of playing it. If anyone has answers please let me know.

    Why blame the poor PSU? The computer can shut down if ANYTHING overheats, not just the PSU.
    CPU overheating causes shutdowns
    GPU overheating doesn't shutdown generally, but throttles instead
    motherboard chipset/vrm overheating can also cause a shutdown.

    Measure your temperatures while playing the games. I'm leaning more towards a CPU thermal problem. Make sure your cooler is clean and that it's well seated on the CPU.
