Your problem is definitely the power supply. I would guess it might put out 400w and is by no means providing stable power to your high end GPU.

I recommend a Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, or Antec of 550w (or higher).

this right here, as the PSU according to its own specs can output roughly 450w on the 12v rail which is pathetic for the 750 rating it has

my guess is that it can't output anything close to this on the 12v rail

also, it is not 80 plus certified which means it is more than likely complete crap
