sorry for long reply yes it is inserted properly and i have the card powered correctly i believe. my psu is a coolmaster extreme power plus 650w I o/c my computer and now that i have put it back to normal settings the graphics card seems to be working better. Not sure if it was in the increase of voltage on the board that somehow fixed the problems but seems to be working great now. But any ideas of what u think was wrong with it would be fantastic.
Two possible reasons: you may be underpowering the system, try upgrading your PSU as this can cause system wide issues. Or, you may have had a bad overclock where your voltages were wrong causeing the PCI-E bus to malfunction. I would try the power supply first as a weak PSU can destroy a computer in a short amount of time.
