PC randomly shuts down during games

I'm having an issue where my PC will randomly shut down completely during the middle of playing Rift. It is not during particularly intense situations either... Specs below
PSU: CoolerMaster Extreme Power Plus 550W (RS-550-PCAR)
CPU: Intel Core i5 2400
Mobo: AsRock H61M-VS
HDD: 1x Seagate Barracuda 300gb @ 7200rpm, 2x 320gb WD @ 7200rpm
Video: ATI Radeon 5670 512DDR5
RAM: 2x g.skill 2gb ddr3 1333
I've got a dvdrw combo drive and 1 case fan. There is also a 1tb WD external HD plugged in via USB with no external power source...could this be the issue??
I'm fairly certain the 550W should be enough power, but I'm also fairly certain it is the cause of my problem!
