GPU powering problem

Alright so my MSI GTX 560 ti is giving me some weird problems. First I got it to run on a Antec Earthwatts 750w. I then updated the drivers and played some 3D game. About 5- 10 mins into the game, the computer suddenly died and would not power on. I then bought a new Corsair HX750 thinking its the PSU but I still have the same problem.

I took out the new GPU and inserted back the old 8800 GTS and everything runs fine. I then tried plugging in only one 6 pin for the GTX 560 instead of two and oddly enough it powered on with all the fans running and I hear the hard drive booting but I get no display on my monitor. What is the matter with the MSI GTX 560 Ti? Please, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

  1. My best guess is that the card died and needs to go to RMA heaven!
