It is not problem, you can use it because pcie3.0 is backward compatible to pcie2.0. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

1) Do you use two 6pins pcie connectors for the 270x? And which model PSU do you have?
The PSU may not have enough juicy for the 270x, because the whole system will use total Wattage about closed to 450W something. 270x=290W, CPU maybe 95-125 W(?), MB=40W, DVD/CD=30W.
2) Check in the BIOS, do you disable the onboard video card HD4250 or not?
3) Monitor the cpu temp, because the GPU run cool.

I know you have the cooler master 500W psu, I mean which model, because some of them is very bad, because they don't have enough power to power the high end GPU. That why I ask which model.
Also check CPU temp, using HWmonitor http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

It should be either RS-500-ACAB-D3 or RS-500-ACAB-M3, the 1st one can output only 444W, other one is even worse. So it may be the PSU, you can test the PSU by using other GPU to see during the game PC will shut down or not.
