is this problem occurs only when you play games? or its something that happen often?

So far yes. I haven't had it happen to anything other than games. It always happens when something graphic intensive comes on the screen. I've tried doing OCCT tests on both the graphics card and PSU and it will restart on it's as soon as I hit the button to start the test. It's either the PSU or Graphics card but I just can't figure out how to determine which it in fact is. I certainly don't want to buy a PSU and then it turns out to be the Graphics card or vice versa.

Sounds similar to my problem except i'm using a geforce gt 630 from sparkle. Mine i've narrowed it down to the gp over heating. My feed to my monitor stops then a few seconds later my pc restarts. If your card is more then a year old many say that taking your gpu fan off cleaning off the gpu and then putting new heat paste and replacing the fan may fix it if it is indeed the gpu as i suspect mine is. You can download HWMonitor a free program to monitor your temps of your pc as well as its voltages to help find out if its your psu or your gpu. After a restart i instantly launched that program and noticed my gpu was running 70+ degrees celsius after a fresh reboot. Which is why i suspect my card. Worth checking out.

What is the power supply?
Do you have a multimeter/volt meter handy?
