thats probs your issue.

unsinall ALL GPU drivers including in device manager. reboot, then reinstall new drivers from nvidia
Unistalled all drivers via device manager + Driver sweeper rebooted windows made the VGA update for drivers succesfully but the problem still exists.Another thing i forgot to mention which may help is when i start a game a strange sound comes from my pc (probably from GPU) it becomes louder as i proceed in game enviroment and then my pc shuts down.

EDIT: The strange sound comes from the PSU.is it a possible Coil Whine??

ok so now it could be your GPU. u may have gotten a faulty gpu.

i would bring it back to where you purchased it and try to get another.

But the sound is coming from the PSU not the GPU...i can hear it quite good from the behind of the PSU...I think my psu is not working properly and that may be the cause my old GPU got toasted...i think i will go for PSU

like we've previously said, its most likely your psu. a wine sometimes comes from the GPU too. thats how mine went out. however, your PSU us the MOST important component of any PC.

heres the one i use and is an excellent one.

CORSAIR CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

DONT CHEAP OUT ON THE PSU!!!!!

500W is overkill lol

its not the wattage of your PSU, it was the quality of it.
take a look at my specs. im using that PSU that i linked you

you can probs do with a 450W or 400W. just make sure that PSU will fit your system as far as connectors

It could be coil whine but if your pc is shutting down then its a good sign that your psu is giving up. If the psu does go bad it could take other components with it so it's best to get it tested.
