Solved Pc keeps shuting down HELP PLS

Specs: PC, i7 2.8GHz/8gb
So i am having this problem for like 2 months

My PC keeps shuting down when I play games

PC makes some weird noises like *beep* *beep* and screen turns black
When I am on internet and just chilling it's good
So when I launch game it's good for like 5mins

I thought it was the dust in pc but i cleaned it and still it keeps shuting down
Can someone tell me what should I do/ or buy.

BTW sorry for bad english :p

Nearly any 250W power supply today is either very old or completely junk.
Your choice in power supply and graphics upgrade are good. If you cannot purchase both together, purchase the power supply first and confirm that your problem is fixed. Your temps will confirm if you are having a heat issue but I suspect that the power supply is marginal, getting worse due to age, and gets worse as it heats up. The heating inside the power supply causes internal resistance to increas which also lessens available current and promotes additional heating.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Did you clean the dust off the CPU heat sink as part of this?

It might be a PSU issue.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It's either overheating or the power supply is weak. Please post the system & CPU temps, plus the make/model & wattage of the power supply.
