Got GTX660. crashed while playing BF3, can't connect my monitor later.

Hello, I just built my first rig yesterday. It's all looking good until I started play BF3. I played for 2-3 hours then I crashed. but after I restart my computer my screen go black. I have to plug my monitor VGA to Motherboard instead.
I also smell something burn just after the crash.
Now I have 2 suspects.
1. the VGA to DVI adaptor that I used.
2.The Graphic card Gigabyte GTX660 OC.
I'm not sure what caused this please help me.

  1. Probably went cheap on a PSU and it came back to bite ya. Other than that, you have to give more info other than my screen went black. Specs etc.

    Why u play game too long!
    U OC that gtx660? , so have u check your GPU temp while playing for an hour include CPU too.
  3. look like I didn't check GPU temp.
    So here's my spec
    CPU i5-3570
    Mobo Asus P8Z77-M
    GPU Gigabyte GTX660 OC (It's factory OC'd. not me)
    PSU Corsair GS 600 (V2 I think. It got 80+bronze)
    RAM Corsair vengeance 8GB 1600 MHz
    Case Cooler master Elite 310
    HDD Seagate baracuda 1 TB 7200rpm
    Optical drive Lite-On IHAS124
