Before you ask, what has been done so far:

Swapped out my GPU from a 560 Ti to a 660 Ti.
Updated GPU Drivers.
Put my RAM from the 2nd and 4th port to the 1st and 3rd.
Disabled automatic reboot on system failure so I would get a BSOD.

I can't check my temps because I literally have no clue as to why or when this will happen excluding one instance, and it's even done it after dusting the inside of my computer. It's done it when emulating Pikmin 2, when quitting SC2, even when booting up Portal 2 once. It's utterly unpredictable and random, the only instance I can guarantee a reboot and recreate the event is when I quit, yes, quit, SC2. I'm utterly stumped. Basically, it only does it when a game is involved.

I'm thinking it's my PSU. Thoughts?

Could be the PSU, could be overheating. Buy a new PSU from Fry's and if that isn't the problem then return it.

Most likely your PSU is not powerful enough.

Well, what is your PSU model then? Another possibility is that you get a faulty unit.

I can when it reboots, but I don't see why I would need to, I know it isn't a virus or anything similar.
