There is a problem with your GPU then...

Or a very unlikely problem that all 3 of your comps have the same problem on the pci-e slots.

Is the power connected properly? If so, are you using 2x molex or 6pin connections? If its shorting out, theres a problem with the card. Is it PCI_E x16, or x8? Be aware you're running a lot of wattage for a 550w, 3 1TB Hdds, and a 320gb hdd, plus a 5770, Phenom Quad which is 90w-125w, plus, i assume, 2x 4GB RAM sticks, plus all the Molex fans on your case.

Baking is usually 50/50 shot and is a last resort, when everything repeatedly fails. But what the heck, give it a shot.

A card like that doesnt sound worth the hassle. Just buy another card
