Wont charge unless in sleep or turned off.

My macbook has slowly over time lost its ability to charge properly. If the charge is anywhere under 50% the charger turns off when doing tasks like streaming video. My question is do i need to replace my battery, magsafe-logic board cable or is this a deeper issue?
