    i just recently bought i new motherbaord for my pc.
    finaly fixed the problem with windows.
    i used to have an emachine and i changed the motherbaord to an a8n-E and i have windows pro installed. no problems but when i play games like counterstrike and games without internet access. i play for about 30 minutes or moreand i get a random shutdown when my computer literaly justs clickes off. its the hardrive, procceser,graphics card and everything else besides the keyboard mouse and motherbaord turn off. its like somone pressed the button. i updated my motheboard bios and installed new drivers for my chipset and video card still problems my specs are.

    mobo: asus a8n-E
    procceser which came with emachine: athlon 64 3200+ 2.01
    graphics card: radeon x850 xt 256 saphfire version
    ram: corsair xms version 2 gigs
    power suplly: its a recently new true power antec psu
    the hardrive was from emachine..and that wouldn't cause problms right?

    ive been trying to find a sulution but can't find one.
    plz help me

    Powersupply or overheating of GPU/CPU I'd say.
