When does it happen, and when did it start?

Have you tried running the game in a lower resolution and/or shader level?

Have you recently changed your hardware?

I highly doubt it has something to do with your drivers (Sound card, Graphic card or w/e). Maybe some essential file got corrupt.

And as I read, you have tried two different drivers for your graphic card. A driver conflict can be the reason why your system is doing so.

Never experiment in such a way with your drivers! A warning to all!

Do you see a blue screen, even if only for a moment, before the computer restarts?

If so, Honest is probably right, something is corrupted.

However, if there's no blue screen at all, then most likely either your processor or video card is overheating and the system is forcing a shutdown to prevent damage.

Could be insufficient power from the PSU if he had recently upgraded, or if he is not used to playing high-end games, it may be overheating from dust. Dunno

@Thrawn and you:-

"have heard that it could be my nvidia drivers but have tried 2 differentt verssions."

This is what he said on his original post. And this somewhat confirms that his system is having a driver conflict.
