Computer crashes every time I play certain games

So basically, every time I play only certain games, my screen will go black and my PC will basically shut off. I mean, the power light stays on but there's a total black screen and all I can do is turn the PC off and back on.

Like I said, this only happens with certain games - only two of them so far: Far Cry 3 and Metro 2033. I've played Fallout: NV, Fallout 3, Dishonored, Skyrim Remastered, Everything, and Sleeping Dogs with no problems.

Here are my important specs:
- Processor: Intel i3-6100
- GPU: ASUS ROG Radeon RX 470 STRIX
- PSU: 430W
- RAM: HyperX FURY 8GB DDR4

I mean, I don't play the newer games on the highest setting or anything...my GPU should be able to handle them. The side of my computer also doesn't seem to get hot and my fans are working properly.
