You probably get BSOD (blue screen of death) but since your Windows is configured to reboot upon fatal error, you don't see what that error is.

To make sure it doesn't restart:

1. From the desktop right click on "My Computer".
2. Click the Properties option.
3. In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
4. In Advanced click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
5. In the Startup and Recovery window uncheck the Automatically restart check box.
6. Click Ok.

Then if it crashes, please post what the error says.

It's your ATI driver.
Download the latest drivers from http://support.ati.com
I think it's Catalyst 6.5

Download Driver Cleaner

Uninstall your current ATI display drivers. Reboot.
Run Driver Cleaner to purge any remaining files.
Install new drivers which you downloaded.

your computer could be overheating. Because you use more computing power when you play games. Ex. Graphics card, cpu, ram. The harder they work, the more heat they will generate and if you don't have good airflow in your pc, it will cause your psu to shutdown and cause the pc to restart.
