New Windows 7 Install = Random Shutdown?!?!?!

So, I posted the other day about how I had a problem with Windows after it tried doing an automatic update.

 

After being frustrated enough, I decided to order a new SSD for my computer and do a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate.

 

After installing it and all the updates, it looks amazing. BUT....

 

The system shuts down without warning like 2 minutes into starting up the system!!!

 

Now I'm thinking it's my graphics card that is the issue....mainly because after we installed the Nvidia drivers (this is for my GTX 670 graphics card) and several other versions of the GTX 670 driver, it is doing the same damn thing.

 

My friend and I are at a complete loss of words here. My CPU temperature is fine, never goes above 40C.

 

One other thing I will point out, when Windows update was finishing a few updates, it did the random shut down then as well. But after that, it booted back up with the updated graphics.

 

Safe mode is no issue, I have no power problems in there. And using the default graphics that look horrendous also work fine without any power problems. We have tried a DVI and HDMI cable, same issue.

 

Any ideas what the hell is going on? I had absolutely no problems before with my graphics card, and my power supply is 850w, so it's more than capable of handling everything.

Right now I'm on the desktop but only using the default graphics drivers. No issues at all. I'm gonna re-install the Nvidia drivers and see if it does it again cause I just did a bunch more Windows updates.
