my new computer which i had for about 1 month psu died so i got a replacement sent. i installed it to find that now the new one worked for about 3 mins all fans turned on sounded all fine but was having problems with my monitor getting signal as i was playing with the cables at the back of the monitor and my whole computer turns off...
i leave it a few mins and turn it back on and fan lights come on for a spilt second then stop and the keyboard lights stay on.

Try basic troubleshooting.

Have you checked if the monitor is broken? Maybe the outputs on your GPU or the inputs on the monitor? The cable?

Is your GPU seated correctly?

Your power supply also seems a bit weak for a high end GPU. If you can, test your PSU in another computer, and see if it works. If you can't, try switching your graphics card for a less power hungry one or if there is a switch for performance vs quietness, turn that to quiet.
