New Graphics Card: Fan slow to turn on then turns off then on again on startup + black screen problem

I recently bought a Powercolor 7870 Myst ed, when I plugged it in for the first time and turned on the power the fan was slow to spin until it turned off for about 1-2 seconds then turned on again. I'm also having a black screen, from the moment I turn the PC on it's all black. I tried mobo only and it booted, I tried my old graphics card and it booted also. I tried a VGA and an HDMI cable but still nothing.

Maybe it's just a faulty card. BTW here are my specs.
i5-3450 3.1ghz,
Seasonic S12II 620W,
MSI H61M-P31 (G3) Mobo
Powercolor 7870 Myst ed (My old one is a 550 TI)

I'd appreciate the help, thanks!

Sounds like the GPU is faulty. The 7870 cards had a fault in them that caused the black screen issue. Quite a few people having it too. Probably best to get a different graphics card. :(
