Erm...How do you know it is the Graphics Card?? It is probably more likely to be RAM.

Did you hook up the psu to the card? And run memtest to check you memory.

This sounds like the problem my friend had. Make sure that the fan on CPU heat sink is working properly. Also make sure that your RAM modules are clean, if not, cleant them with a soft, non-synthetic cloth, better use a pencil eraser to clean the glod plated connectors of the RAM. Be gentle though. Verify and let us know. I really don't think it's a graphics card problem.

Well...I doubt you connected it wrong, unless possibly, do u have a SATA drive? cause ome sata drives have 2 power connecters, when u are only supposed to put in one.

Have a look at the temp gauge in the gfx card properties and see what it idles at and how hot it gets running a game and compare them. I use that card and mine reach about 56 and they are O/C by 10% with stock fans. My pals reaches over 70 but still doesnt cut out or perform strangely.
