OK so i assembled my first computer recently. And everything seems to be running fine. i am on it right now. But every now and then i get random black screens from my monitor. It doesn't effect what i am doing or anything just goes blank for a second and then back on. The monitor don't shut off when this happens. so

Is this really bad? is there something i can do? A Hardware problem/dying?

i also have a new graphics card coming in Tuesday, if it was you guys would you try and fix this before something bad happens, or should i wait for graphics card to come in. Run the graphics through that and see if the problem persists? Right now i am just running off mobo integrated graphics.

I have the msi 760gm-p34

any advice or info you could give me would be great.

Just wait for the new GPU. Install it and the drivers and chances are this problem will go away.

I don't suppose its happening when you're updating an application or running an install - that sounds like what happens whenever Win7 is prompting you to have access to the hard drive.
