have you connect the 6-pin power connector to the card? if your PSU does not have one you can use the molex cable. sometimes they were bundled with the card. if not you have to buy it yourself

What are the rest of your system specs? It might be easier if we could see the whole picture.

you have plenty of power

I would suggest you double check your PCI-E six pin connection, makes sure it is fully plugged in.
