This means it's software right? I have not tested each by itself so I am not sure which one it is, but, if it is number 2, why wouldn't the normal shutdown feature work?
Could be software, or PSU. No way to tell without testing the PSU.

If it is the psu, could I live with it because I just bought it?

If you have another computer that you can swap the PSU out of, you can use it to test.

So, say I put this PSU in another computer and I get 6008 errors. Would that just mean I got one that is defective?

If the error moves to the new computer with the psu the problem is the psu.

Is there any other way to test this because I don't have another desktop...or is it that big of an issue?

You can estimate if your psu have enough power to power the system here. Psu calculator
