New but unstable system.
Good quality motherboard.
Power hungry video card.
Professionally built for you.

Chipset drivers?
BIOS upgrade needed?
Memory Vram set too low?
Never heard of an Epsilon psu - suspicious.

I just googled Epsilon....its actually FSP's Epsilon line; not a separate brand. So, I wouldn't suspect the PSU anymore.....although that is still possible.

It could be anything that newf said...but if it isn't, I would suggest bringing it back to whoever built it for you. If its a computer shop, they should have some sort of warranty....

Best of Luck
