If that is indeed the issue, then the problem is with your hardware. You need a PSU with enough power to supply all the components in your system and you need a setup that can cool your components so they remain in the manufacturer's thermal limits. Unless a game actually overclocks your hardware (which as far as I know, no modern PC game has ever done), it is impossible for them to cause crashes on a properly functioning machine simply by "pulling too much juice".
