My computer keeps restarting while playing games. It does it randomly sometimes seconds into a game, sometimes hours. There are no error messages or anything. It's been doing this on and off since I built this pc, I've tried older and latest graphics drivers from Nvidia 275.33 to 306.23 with no change.

My computer specs are:
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 GAMER™ 2010, 64 bit
Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 26 Stepping 5
Processor Count: 8
RAM: 10228 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570, 1279 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 152524 MB, Free - 45810 MB; D: Total - 476836 MB, Free - 332430 MB; F: Total - 1907599 MB, Free - 161428 MB; H: Total - 1907599 MB, Free - 361045 MB; I: Total - 953867 MB, Free - 953738 MB;
Motherboard: Intel Corporation, DX58SO
Antivirus: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2012, Updated and Enabled
Power Supply: Thermaltake Toughpower Cable Management 750W PSU

Idle Temps:
Video card: 63 C
Motherboard - Zone 2: 32 C
Motherboard - System: 44 C
Motherboard - CPU: 58 C
CPU - Core #0: 40 C
CPU - Core #1: 37 C
CPU - Core #2: 41 C
CPU - Core #3: 38 C

It is worth noting I have a Coolermaster V6 CPU Cooler, in a Coolermaster USP 100 Chassis with 3 fans.

Please help, this is getting ridiculously frustrating, and I just don't know what to do.
