Computer crashes to black screen after installing new graphics card: any help/advice?

I've been having trouble with my computer where, after installing a new graphics card and the correct drivers, the computer will crash seemingly at random to a black screen. I'm able to use it to go on the internet or play games for anywhere from 5 minutes to half an hour, but it always crashes. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, reseating the graphics card, and I even gave Windows a new reinstall.

This is really frustrating me, so if anyone has seen or, especially, resolved a problem like this, your help would be greatly appreciated.

try contacting its manufacturer and describe your problem to them.
The will surely replace your Card since its new if its the problem of the CARD

also a faulty PCI slot or some problems on motherboard related to the PCI slot may cause the problem too

PSU maybe too..

What is your system specs ? It looks like you have a faulty/underpowered PSU.
