Okay so heres the thing... my computer has been pooched since i bought it... I looked and looked for the model i bought so i could post it here for you but it was so long ago i cant remember but its not really important.

Cause right now i just need to narrow down whats wrong based on the symptoms.

You see when i got it it would crash constantly with no prompts or warning or error messages. Every time i tried to play a game it would just go out. Bigger games caused it to go out faster. I took it to a repair guy who said "Its cause your power supply isnt good enough to run this rig" so just to be safe I bought a 850 wattz power supply, more than enough for this computer.. 

I took it home and it ran fine for abotu a week and could run big games. but than it started doing it again and more and more frequently as time went on (( although that might just be in my head, theres a chance it was never actually fixed )) so i called him up and said it didnt work and he said "Well i ran it in my shop all night with stress testers and if it was gunna go out it woulda did it in my shop. it must be your outlets not being powerful enough to run your computer"

Now.. That doesnt sound right casue it can run my consoles just fine and my old PC and he said it had something to do with my circate board having 1 wire or 2? but we use a fuse box... 

anyway... heres the situation. recently it started going out more often as the summer gets closer and when it does go out it will crash like 3 or 4 times in a row when i try to boot it back up before ever reaching the main screen. Could that be a hint? If it was a power thing would it be going out when my computer isnt doing anything just booting up? Is this more likely to be an overheating issue?

have you tried to just let it idle overnight and see if it idles fine? it is possible you have what they call dirty power in your outlets but that issue is very few and far between with a new power supply in I don't forsee a power issue but it could possibly be a bad ram stick or overheating. I suggest letting it idle overnight 24+ hours and see if it lasts that long idle doing nothing on it

Its random. sometimes when i let it idle over night it shuts down and sometimes it doesnt... although its more and more frequent and my room is getting hotter so i think it may be a heating issue as summer slowly returns. and when i bring the fan closer it happens less.
