The processor and graphic card in your gaming rig use 278 watts of power all by themselves.
When you factor in the power needs of the other hardware and the demands of gaming, a quality power supply with sufficient wattage is needed.
What's the brand name and exact model number of your power supply?

What's the brand name and exact model number of your motherboard?
How much RAM does it have?

Have you looked inside the case to see if it's full of dust and debris? (which can cause overheating)

I do agree that the PSU, depending on model and such, could quite possibly be the issue...however I'd like to clarify some that was stated. TDP isn't a direct correlation to power draw, it really refers to heat dissipation and manufacturers aren't very accurate on it. For example, Tom's Hardware tested the R9 380 and under heavy load it averages 234W draw, and reached as high as nearly 300W. The 4690k will be between 100-150W under heavy load depending on whether it's overclocked or not.

So hunternero, please list full specs and info so any info given can be more accurate.
