PC shuts down suddenly when playing game

#1
This has happened several times over the past couple days. I will be playing DC Universe Online and my Windows 7 x64 PC simply and abruptly shuts down. Not blue screen, nothing just power off. I have had the system for years and never seen this happen under other circumstances. I don't know how to figure this out at all.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello Flasharino,
to Windows 7 Forums,

Sounds like it shut down due to heat.
When was the last time you cleaned out the dust and are you getting enough air circulation?
