Alright, before i begin, let me say, i'm no dummy when it comes to computers.
I've built every single rig i've ever owned. Numerous builds for family, friends, etc.
But i am at a loss to what is causing my PC woes.
I'll start off with my system specs and then go from there.
Case: Antec 900
Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair Gen One
CPU: Athlon 64 x2 5200+ @ 2.6 Ghz
Video: 2x EVGA 8800GTX in SLI @ 576/1350/900
Memory: 2x 2Gb Nvidia SLI DDR2-800 4-4-4-12 @ 2.2V

Monitor: ASUS VH236H Black 23" Full HD Widescreen LCD Monitor
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I downloaded a bunch of games from Steam that were on sale. The only game so far i am having issues with is Battlefield Bad Company 2.
Screen resolution set to 1920x1080, graphics set to high. Everything is running fine, graphics looking awesome. No tearing, ripping, artifacts. Game runs smooth.
I'll get into a spot where i'm doing something, like shooting at the enemy on foot, shooting from a tank, or whatever, and an explosion will happen right in front of me, and for no reason, my computer just shuts down.
No locked game, no stuttering, just straight powering off.
I'm thinking my power supply might be the issue, but with no spare parts to check it, i can't just go splurging money, especially seeing as I'm in the Navy, and the sole income in my household of four.
Any help in this issue would be greatly appreciated. I love playing the game, but it's really frustrating me that my PC is just shutting down on a whim. Thanks for the help in advance.
