Computer keeps shutting off during specific events (Hardware listed in post)

Card is Sapphire branded

When I play a video game (skyrim, portal 2, tf2, even non steam games) my computer will run for about 35-50 minutes and then it will suddenly shut down and I have to reboot to turn it back on. I've had this problem on a previous computer and was unable to ever fix it. I ended up throwing that computer out and that was around 3-4 years ago. I'd like to keep this pc as it's the only one I have.

I'm suspecting it may be a heating issue or there is a lot of dust or maybe the card may be fried.
Any ideas?

Are those temps under load? I don't assume they are, so open a game and open HWMonitor and watch the temps. Tell us what your processor and GPU are getting up to under load.

Weird, I hit the submit button but my reply was not posted.
The temps are right after boot up. I will run a game and take some screenshots. However, when I'm playing even an older game like Crossfire (cs 1.6 clone), the issue the still arises. I think it's not a bad graphics card but a bad psu?

Also, I'm going to dust out all the parts and give the case a good dusting.

What Case do you have?

What PSU do you have? How old is it?

Do you have your CPU overclocked at all?
