your computer is overheating most likely. some part of it isn't getting enough cooling (either cpu, video card, or the internal temperature as a whole is too high)

it happened to me too a while ago when the a/c in my house broke

Coretemp/Realtemp for CPU temp monitoring
GPU Shark for GPU temp monitoring

The first two are easy to find with googling. The last is a bit more difficult to find, so I'll help.

You can check cpu-world(.com) to find the recommended temp for your CPU. GPUs are usually rated up in the 90-100C range.

If temps look ok, the next thing to check will be power supply voltages. You could have a damaged PSU that drops voltage out of regulation under load (do you do anything intensive besides games?), causing a system shutdown. A multimeter would be helpful here since software voltage monitoring is somewhat unreliable.
