    There are several reason for this sort of behaviour...

    First off is a bsod, but that your system is set to reboot instead of showing it...
    If you do the following steps, you should get a proper bsod with info on what caused it:
    Or your system could be overheating...
    You can download a tool, Samurize for instance, which'll monitor the heat temp and output it to a file which you can check after the reboot. You can also check manually in the BIOS after the reboot, but that is a lot more hassle...

    After you've done this (turned of automatic reboot and installed a heat monitor), post back the information you get when the crash occurs, and we'll have a better chance of pinpointing what's the cause...

    I'm having a similar problem with my computer while playing Operation Flashpoint. I get a blue screen with this error: (0x0000008e, 0x805674c7, 0xee0d7c54, 0x00000000) then I'm forced to restart.
