GTX 460 Kernel 41 power issue need help ASAP

Hello guys im new in here i just got an problem with my system

i was just lunching steam like i do normally and then i open up counter strike GO

then my suddenly my computer restarts with no warning and keeps restarting after the windows logo
and there pops up blue screen for about 2 seconds and restarts again

i open up safe mod and i check the event viewer and i get this critical error

here down below

and after that those tons of retarts
i started getting green lines on my monitor witch is obviously my video card because i have tried 2 other monitors

the only thing i can do to run windows normally

go in to safe mod unistall display drivers and then boot it up notmally
as soon as i re install the dispay driver and try to retart normally i get the blue screen and restart again

so i can only run my computer in safe mode

i re installed the OS and formated i keep getting the restarts and the bluescreens

is anyone here with a similar problem or knows what to do

I would also take a serious look at a better power supply.
Every review I have look at call this a budget power supply of question.
