    So I recently purchased a new GPU in December. A GTX 1060 Windforce OC 3gb to be exact and it was working fine until recently I've had this problem where when I am playing any video game my computer completely shuts down and I have to unplug it to get it to turn back on. I'm afraid it could a faulty piece of hardware, Any ideas?

    Sounds like a bad PSU or overheating CPU.
    Make and model of PSU and the HSF(heatsink fan)?

    Cooler Master PSU's are cheap because they are of low quality. I am concerned that that may indeed, be where your issue lies.

    Do you have a different PSU you can swap in to test?
