PC Shut down

Specs: Windows Vista
Hello all!

Ive got a problem with my pc.
Recently bought a new one, keeping my old hard drive and dvd-rom burner.

I have this thing that if I play games, however some games, not all: it doesnt happen in Prototype? But it happens frequently in Gears of War.
The PC will simply shut everything down. It turns itself off. I read on the internet that it could be a heating issue, but that's not the case, since my cpu will get to MAX 50C, MB: 40-45, GPU1: 55-60, GPU2: about the same.

I also read on the internet it could be a PSU issue. Since I dont have a spare PSU available, I thought i would post this first.

Here is my system as is:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE
MB: Asus Crosshair II Formula
RAM: KingstonValue DDR2-800 (4GB)
GPU: 2x 8800GTX (standard OC)
Case: NZXT Tempest
PSU: brandless 780W

Thanks in advance!

Yep, my guess would be this: "PSU: brandless 780W".

Why would you buy all brand name components, but when it comes to the single most important piece of hardware in the PC, you go with "brandless"?

So, if I were to get a Corsair HX1000W PSU, it would probably solve this puzzel?

##EDIT: Bought the Corsair PSU I stated above, and it's working perfectly!
Thanks for the suggestions!
