While I am playing a game, or just watching youtube videos my computer restarts randomly. Is it a hardware problem? I am so confused!

Ugh, something is very hot at 93C!

Let's double check...

Download, and install Everest: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html
Expand Computer folder.
Click on Sensor.
Post all info from there.

Still inconclusive, but...
If 93C is for your video card, it's very, very hot.
If it's for CPU, it's a disaster.
Your CPU max temp is listed at 85C

Turn your computer immediately off.
Get a can of compressed air (nothing else is permitted).
Open computer case and do nice cleaning inside.
