Added a new GPU and PSU and now my computer crashes and restarts itself after 5-10 minutes of playing games. How do i fix?

Recently ive added a new PSU and GPU to my PC and now when i play video games for 5-10 minutes, my computer will completely crash and restart itself

Corsair CX750 power supply
Nvidia GeForce 660 Video Card
AMD A8 6600k Processor

I dont think the problem is overheating since i checked open hardware monitor and my temps are okay and ive completely dusted and cleaned my fans too, which didnt help.
i dont know much about computers so any advice for fixing this would be helpful. thanks

    This is most likely the culprit, it is extremely poorly rated and should be avoided in all builds, regardless of use.

    Sorry :( You need a high quality PSU - one that actually delivers the power it advertises. A high quality 500W PSU should power your PC without a problem.

    Seasonic 500W are reasonably priced and of unmatched quality.
