Hello,
My computer crashes and there doesn't seem to be any relevence to what i'm doing. Sometimes when i'm surfing online, other times when i'm playing games, sometimes when i'm not doing anything. After it crashes it can't be turned back on until all the power has been drained from the PSU by turning it off at the back and leaving it for several seconds. I recently upgraded most of the components and wiped it and am really confused as to what i can do next.

My specs are:

Graphics card: AMD Radeon HD7770 (2GB, GDDR5)(ASUS)

Processor: AMD Bulldozer FX-8 Eight Core 8120@8150 Black Edition 3.60Ghz (Socket AM3+)

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3 AMD 880G (Socket AM3+) DDR3 MicroATX

Power Supply: OcUK Battle 750W Dual Rail High Efficiency Modular '80 Plus'

RAM: Kingston HyperX Genesis Grey 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit (KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX)

Hardrive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache - OEM (WD5000AAKX)

Forgot to mention that i'm not getting any error messages, it just shuts down. I also believe that my drivers are all up to date and it'd definitely not overheating.

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

There may be an error message in Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Event Viewer in either the System or Application logs.
