First make sure you uninstall all older drivers (including intel HD if the case) then make sure your integrated graphic are disabled in the bios and make PEG as first graphic...

If you really have removed older drivers in safe mode and all correspondant registry key are deleted or you just formated, then i suspect a DOA card...

Make sure to really get rid of any other driver, even if it was an ATI/AMD card with the newest driver you had, you still need to remove them completly and reinstall them from the scratch...

Does this happen when first booting the computer, or only after getting into Windows?

To me that looks like an unstable overclock or a really bad heat issue, if its doing that before you'v hit Windows, youv gotten a dud unit. Might want to RMA it.
If its happening after it gets into Windows, it could still be the above problems, but also could be driver or software issues like SpawnKiller is suggesting.

When i plugged my new card first time, at first start it started coming...

so it means yes from start(even before bios options)

Confirm if its actually the GPU at fault, unplug the card and use the integrated graphics. If that works fine, then you can definitely say the GPU is the problem. Chances are likely the cooler is mounted incorrectly on the GPU or nearby VRAM modules, causing these issues.
Considering its a brand new part, you should be able to get an RMA quite easily.

format & reinstalling the os may fix the problem but make sure the display cable (vga / dvi / hdmi) is plugged in 7950 while u r installing the os..& make sure you've installed the gpu well in the mobo..with the 6 pin connector(s)..

I believe its new graphics card fault, as my old graphics card(hd 6850 1gb ddr5) is working fine. on same pc

Only problem is with Hd7950 card...

even i updated bios, removed all old drivers in safe mode....
still no solution....
spend my 8 hours on it tryd my best but :(  :(
