That's not unusual, it's about ten to 15 degrees over where you would like it to be, but right at the borderline of overheating. You need to add more cooling, either add a couple of fans, or get a better cpu cooler. Com/tiger, or newegg, has everything you need. The cheapses way is just to add a couple of larcer displacement fans to blow more air into the case, in the fron of the case, and add another in the rear of the case to pull out the hot air, get a flow going. If you can do a case mod, you can put one on top, and another on the side, which is what I have, it can be done for around 20-40 dollars, depending what you purchase. You should have used some arctic silver between the heatsink and fan, to get better heat dissapation.

When I play a game on my computer about 15 -30 minutes later it shuts down. Originally it had a 430 Watt power supply. I have now replaced it with a 650 Watt power supply. The hardware currently has a AMD...

Ok it was not your power pack but your setup in my opinion needed some extra Watts.

This problem is to do with heat, your PC is getting to hot and is shutting down to prevent it from being permanently damaged.
Click here for Hardware monitor, on the right hand side of the screen, click 1.16 setup, english
Click here for GPU-Z, click TechPowerUp GPU-Z v0.4.7

This will download both Temperature monitors.

Temperature's on the CPU should NOT exceed 30-40 degrees.
Temperature's on the Graphic Card should not exceed 65-70 degrees.

To solve this problem you must clean your whole computer case and components of dust. Particular attention must be given to the Processor and Graphics Card. Use a paint brush and a vacuum cleaner. Dust cooler off outside if neccessary.

Cooler Temps mean better Performance and a longer life span.
Ensure that the thermal interface paste is sufficient.

Install as many Fans as possible.

Please take the time to rate this solution it is the thumbs up on the top right hand side of this solution.

Your socket is AM2. You can put any AMD processor that has AM2. If the processor is AM3 just upgrade the bios of your motherboard and it should work. If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers
