    Almost certainly Jesse.
    Generic, read Chinese cheapies, PSU's have a limited
    life span. sometimes as little as a few months.
    Replace it with an Antec PSU and get a more reliable
    and constant power supply, a lot less noise and a
    three year warranty.
    Double the price, but well worth it.

    I had a similar-sounding problem a few months ago when I built a new PC, so
    I will tell you my story and I hope you can at the very least gain some
    insight from it. From reading the other posts, it sounds like the system is
    becoming unstable from either your processor getting overworked.
    Overworking the processor can cause insufficient power which can trigger
    shutoff. My PC was behaving erratic - (shut off after a minute, sometimes
    stayed on longer, other times would reboot itself or crash on Windows
    startup) - and I went through two 500-watt power supplies, thinking that was
    the problem. I ended up buying a 700-watt power supply from NewEgg (Coolmax
    Green Power) and have not had the problem since. One last bit of advice...
    do not, I repeat DO NOT buy the $10 power supplies that are so tempting. A
    few people I know told me they can literally blow up after a few months.
    It's better to spend $50 on a quality power supply and not have to worry!
