Bolded parts are likely your problem. You have an off-brand power supply whose total wattage is less than what NVIDIA recommends (575W minimum for a GTX 280). Upgrade your power supply to at least 600W and choose from any number of name-brand units (Corsair, OCZ, etc). If you also had a similar problem with another type of system, you may also have some issues with the power running to your house. In that case, you should also invest in some kind of surge protector/battery backup.
