    My computer keeps heating up and shutting down every time it gets heated. What's the problem?

    Laptop or desktop?
    Most likely dust that prevents your fans from working correctly.
    But yes, for securities sake your PC will shut down if it gets too overheated

    If you take it to a shop check their reviews first, most shops like phone repairs just fuck up your device

    Have a GTX 1080 and it ran with a 550w psu. As a result of not enough power, the fans would spin on the video card really fast for 3-4 seconds and then shutdown for securities sake like @Sentinel said. This happened on multiple occasions. I then bought a 750w and never had the issue again.

    How much is that worth around though I am thinking money wise also.

    Depends on where u live. In Canada I paid like $150. If this is a machine u care about, then money is worth it, otherwise in the long run it'll hurt your components. Just google around local stores or online like amazon.

    griimnak You're a slave to the money then you die

    Take it apart and clean dust from the fan/sink and re-paste the thermal paste if you have any laying around
