Blue screen of death, and graphic card crash

Hi, my brother installed an XFX AMD Radeon 7770 graphic card into my computer about 8 days ago, and it was working fine for 2 days playing League of Legends, but whenever I played another game such as Zombie Panic Source, I crashed and got a blue screen of death. It also said something about video display, it may have crashed. Please help.

Computer model is p6774y, and nothing has been changed since I first got it, except the graphic card, but there was no graphic card before, just the processor that was displaying it.
Power supply is 450w, and that's all the graphic card needs.
Also, the computer was reformatted after the graphic card was in, and I installed AMD Catalyst control center after it was reformatted.

    this is a good power supply for the money and should make your pc stable with the new card.

    Well, the power supply that is in the computer now was from my cousin's computer, some dell computer which had another graphic card, and it had 450. The power supply that was in this computer was removed.
    I told my brother to get some corsair power supply.
  3. read the make and model on the power supply now to make sure the unit you have now is a good unit. if it is a good unit then try running memtest86 see if you have bad stick of ram.
