    Are you getting Blue screen errors just before it turns off, it may be software/hardware incompatibility.

    First thing to do would be to go to Control Panel/System/Advanced/Startup and Recovery and uncheck re-boot on errors...

    CPU overheating, maybe. Check for Overclocking.

    Try booting the system with the case off and a fan blowing into the computer. If this helps, your system or CPU is overheating.

    Make sure the CPU and memory are not being overclocked in the BIOS.

    Did the problems start after you changed the card and RAM? Was it an added memory module? Check the seating of the card & memory.
