    You have 16 GB of RAM, and a 650W PSU so I doubt that's the issue. Having said that, I'd monitor temperatures (CPU and GPU), power usage, and RAM usage. I'd bet you'll find that one of those belies an issue, and we can work from there.

    Check the connectors inside your PC, keep an eye on the temps too

    When i started it and checked the temps after it had shut off it was at ~79 degrees celsius is that too high? Probably it is if it shut off

    Yeah, I'd leave a temp monitor up and just look from time to time so you can try to catch it just before it shuts off. 174.2°F (79°C) is a bit high, especially for a computer that was just off.

    79°C at idle is too high. I had a friend with a 2700x who had the same issue and it turned out that the CPU cooler wasn't installed correctly. I would double check that your cooler is installed correctly and thermal paste is properly applied.

    79 is high, but it isn't too high that it should make your PC shut off.
    Download a temp monitor with overview so you can monitor your temp while playing (example: MSI afterburner)
    See how your temps are just before the PC shuts off.

    Also, check your shutdown log.

    If it is overheating, then inspect and clean fans from dust.
    If your PC is older, you may have to apply new thermal paste.

    If the shutdown log does not specify a cause, it could also be your GPU dying. How old is it?

    Eh.. It's not that bad, but it could be the issue still. Again, check your temp and shutdown log. IF it is temperature related, then thermal paste is a cheap fix.

    If you don't have pets or kids around your pc (and if you are a careful person) then leave your case open on one side :p
    My pc is 8 years old and never overheated.

    With shutdown, do you mean that windows is shutting down or that the system shuts down hard as if you had cut power?

    If the computer acts like you would have cut power, this indicates either

    • Overheating - be sure to clean all the fans and the case for example using pressurized air. (Do not spin up the fans with pressurized air as the electric current generated could damage the hardware)

    • Power supply unit being faulty. Even when rated way above demand, a lousy power supply can ruin your day.
