Hey guys so I just bought and installed an asus 7870 and everything works fine... Then all of the sudden it will go black, but theres a catch I have discovered. It only does it when I have been running certain programs for so long. The main one I have discovered is photoshop, it has happened once or twice when I was playing GTA IV but that is about it if I just browse the internet it doesnt do it, well as far as I have seen.

System Specs:

Mobo: Asus M5A97 R2.0
CPU: AMD FX-8150
Old GPU: HIS Radeon 7790
New GPU: Asus Radeon 7870
Ram: 16GB
PSU: Inland 600W

Poor quality PSU replace that first and retest

The PSU actually wasnt the issue, it was the drivers I though I had checked for the most updated ones but I didn't but I fixed it.

Best solution
