Tower shutting down

As I said in another thread that I just got a custom built computer and it was working fine when I had it at work, but when I took it home, it shut down on me; so I moved it to another outlet and the same results. I took it back to the guy that built it for me and he changed out the power supply to 650 (was 550).

So...............it did it again!!!

The most logical conclusion is that my apartment wiring sucks?

I'm pluggin in a 27in monitor in the same outlet so perhaps it can't handle that much juice?

Could a bad motherboard do that?

I'm gonna take it back to work and see if it does it here.

If it was a problem with the machine it would fall over at work too. The wattage of the PSU is irrelevant.
Therefore I suspect an issue in your apartment.
