  1. Ok i recently stopped playing MW2 and started playing CoD4 again

    But whenever i really get into a game, about 5 or 10 minutes in, my computer randomly shuts down.

    I don't know if its overheating, Or using up too much Physical memory/CPU or whatever (Im fairly novice with the hardware and theory of PC's, so please be patient)

    Also im planning on upgrading my PC in july when i have enough money, Any suggestions of what to improve?

    If anyone can help me please do so

    AMD Phenom(tm) 9550 Quad-Core Proccessor
    4.00 GB Ram
    NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GS

    Suspect the power supply. It is always a good investment to buy a higher quality power supply... Quality is much more important than power rating, as you want a very quick response, and steady output..
