under load your gpu pulls 219w. under idle its 105. this is for the standard card. does not show the power draw for the OC model.

This could be a power problem but unlikely if it happens when playing games and surfing the net.

I would try getting updated drivers off the net. If that does not work the PSU would be my next guess.

Because you drivers, games and your web browser make use of Java. There have been a lot of java fixes the last few months and when you update java you need to uninstall your older versions first otherwise like gpu drivers it can cause problems

reviews on your card seem positive so I reckon its ok,
low power to a card would just manifest by the kind of problems your experienceing, but before you splash out on a new psu (as stated yours seems fine for the draw required) check the drivers
it wouldn't damage the card as far as I'm aware, just cause it to perform erroneously

Please, first fix the problem with your keyboard. Your posts are hard to read.

Obvious questions first: is your video cable properly connected? Is your monitor power cable properly connected? Are all the connectors within your PC properly connected?
