If your computer ran fine before the upgrade in GPU then a Windows reinstall is not required. Have you made sure that the card has been seated in the slot correctly and that it's receiving the necessary power?

Have you installed the latest stable drivers?

^ this ! Make sure you uninstall all your video drivers and user driver sweeper http://www.techspot.com/downloads/4266-driver-sweeper.html to make sure that your system is nice and clean and then download the latest from AMD http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst1211betadriver.aspx and see how it goes then.

Drivers should fix it. Be sure to remove the old ones as mentioned above. Yes, the 650 is plenty to power that setup.

I mentioned the seating because if it wasn't in fully, a slight jog or bump could be all it needs for it to lose contact with the slot. Always worth checking! smile.gif

When you stress test, all power to your room goes off...
