Yeah, I will agree with iceclock, you PS is probably not getting anywhere near the 500w advertised. It just exherts it self a little bit more than normal and shut's off.

It's a possibility, and many would consider it a likelihood. Never a good idea to go with a generic PSU. Why did you switch to the new PSU? If you or a friend have a spare PSU you could swap them and see if the problem persists. If not then you know what to do, and if not you can continue on to the next step in diagnosing the problem
