Yes u will find a solution here. My suspect is when your doing heavy staf cpu overheat and system restart, u can start by checking cpu temp in bios and report them here.

Do u have another good working psu(400w 12v@30 minimum) if yes install it and run the games. I know your current psu is working but it could be bad.When u are doing other things(not playing games) does pc restart?

the only psu that i have is that 500 w...and about the restarts problems, it happened only during the gameplay.
hmm, some other thoughts say that my cpu cooler is the problem, because the PHENOM X2 550 produce so many heat...is that right?
if yes, i think i'm gonna get one for better cpu cooler other than the basic one from the processor box.
so, if this is likely to be the solution, what is the suitable cooler should i try?

No, the stock cooler is fine and your cpu temp seems fine. I suspect psu, how much did u pay for that psu?

Your psu seems fine multiple +12v@20, next time look for single +12v rail with high amps. Find a way to replace your psu or if u have another graphic card(old) try it, i suspect your psu can't provide enough juice when the system is underload.
