This is a brand new built, it's only 1 week old but I am having problems.
My specs are
CPU: intel i5 4670k
RAM: Crucial ballistix sport 2x 8 GB
Graphics card: GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5
Power supply: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX 850 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Bronze
MB: ASUS maximus VI hero

I was finding possible reasons that made my computer crash, like: stuck on "starting windows", random freezes, screen tearing, screen disappearing and reappearing, even though my computer is on, and even getting "nvidia display driver stopped responding and has recovered" errors. When I detach my graphics card, the computer works fine.
I'm thinking that it might be a defective graphics card, but I'm not sure about it. I might want to even replace this via warranty. Please help guys!!

Latest GPU drivers? Are you sure the PSU isn't faulty and not supplying enough power? ( i have no idea how to tell you how to diagnose a PSU). If you have the latest drivers and 100% sure the PSU isn't faulty, replace the card.

I thought it was a BIOS problem, so I installed the latest one just a few minutes ago. However, the problem still exists. I'm 100% sure that when i just use the computer without my graphics card, it runs smoothly. But when i plug in the card, the problem of freezing starts again. The Nvidia driver I have is 331.40 Beta driver, but even with the official 327.23, it same problem still persists.
My PSU is brand new, like a few weeks old, so I can't tell if its faulty.
