The standby couldn't be taken off so he was left with a blank screen.
    In the end we monitored the rail's and total power in general and found it was dropping low as it got hot, normally I would of thought it would of just turned itself off but that wasn't the case, it clearly allowed the computer to keep running but didn't allow the graphics card to full rail power to function properly as it got hot.

    The new cooler master PSU 700w fixed the problem straight away.
    There's a difference between a cheap PSU giving problems and a computer not getting enough power.
    500w is enough for a 570, unless your over clocking it. For a very long time I was running 6970 on a 500w for quite a bit (Nearly a year) before I switched it out for a 7970 and picked up my 650w. The PSU will either burn out (which usually leads to other things burning out) or it'll stop other things from running I.E fans, rarely does this. Usually will just shut down the pc and not be able to turn on.

    judging from the minidump file that you provided to SnOwBunZz, it should be GPU related error.
    If the blue screen you're encountering is stuff like

    Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.

    Technical Information:

    *** STOP: 0x00000116
    As what SnOwBunZz said:

    Given the file description states that DirectX caused it, I'm a bit weary of this. As you're a gamer, nearly every install prompts you for an update or recheck of DirectX. :/
    update or uninstall/install your GPU drivers
