A couple of days ago my PC suddenly lost power. Attempting to power it only results in a CPU fan twitch. At first I thought it was a faulty PSU, but hooking the system up to a new one gave me the exact same problem. Unplugging the graphics card from the PSU allows the system to boot just fine. Does anyone know a way get my card working again, or should I just repair/replace it it?

if you arent on a surge etc your psu might have not stopped a surge to your card and fried it but not likely. i would try another pcie slot first and if still nothing hope you still have a warranty and rma it
I don't know for sure but in a scenario where a modern card like a 7950 was not getting the power it needed I would expect the card to throttle down or just not run at all. The days when a card would pull and pull resulting in a dead card or PSU should be behind us.
