Graphics Card Intermittent Bootup Problem

I recently upgraded my Graphics card from an AMD 7850 to a 7970.

However, bootup is intermittent and i need to reboot multiple times, anywhere between 2-3 times to sitting in front of my computer trying things for hours.

My other graphics card works fine as soon as i plug it in.
I have updated my BIOS to the most recent one.
I've changed my BIOS settings to run from PEG.

My PC setup is:
CPU: AMD FX-6300
Cpu Cooler - Antec Kuhler H20 620
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA 970A - UD3
RAM - 8 Gb G. Skill Ripjaws X
SSD - G.Skill 120 Gb
PSU - Corsair CX750M (750W)

Anyone have any ideas what the problem could be?

    okay, try to reseat your graphic card..
    and make sure all power cable plugged tight and perfectly..

    if your old graphic card have no issue, then there are 2 probabilities..
    you have fail powersupply..
    or your new graphic card is fail..

    Corsair CX750M is more than enough to handle single 7970..then well, it's your graphic card..
    I suggest to rma it..
