make sure your psu is plugged into the gpu correctly, uninstall 12.9, try one like 12.7,if those dont work, then send them back and get a good psu (I recommend corsair or antec.)

I'd also tell you to check your VGA cable for a short circuit or a cut, it happened to me twice so far, once because of the cable and once because of the monitor itself (but it was an old CRT, I don't think this applies here too)
Also, try using, for example, this benchmark: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/
