          I suggest that you do a web search for "power supply calculators", choose one and feed in all of your system's hardware. You didn't indicate what peripherals or graphics solution you were using, so I did a quick calculation using a reasonably-loaded system design. Even then, requirements came in well under what your supply provides. What does this mean? Either you have a failing power supply or, more likely, something else is responsible for this. Please provide a better explanation of your system, what you are seeing happen and what you do about it to get going again.

              Well, I ran one of the calculators for you. It yields a minimum requirement of 229W - which your PSU provides - but it also recommended a 500W PSU. Remember, though, that these requirements will likely go up when you replace your graphics card; today's boards are much more power hungry. I would recommend that you look for a Bronze 80+ certified 500W PSU...

               

              Now, all that said, your other information has me thinking that your problem is not the PSU. It sounds more like you have a component on the board that is failing under load. This could be a thermal issue (I have seen many failing parts that run ok when cold but fail when heated up. Consequently, I would recommend a motherboard replacement as well...

                I would add that there is always a possibility that it is not the motherboard itself, but some component - like memory DIMMs - that is plugged into it...
