Send it back and get your money back because they're using a backstreet crap PSU to power that setup, so it sounds like any time there is any real graphics pull, which it is under Firefox (hardware acceleration) and WEI (Direc3D tests), it's crashing due to lack of power.

Xigmatek use HEC to manufacturer their PSU's... at least most of them. And they are... garbage.. >.>

Corsair, Seasonic, Enermax, XFX, Sapphire, PC power and cooling , Zippy are all PSU manufacturers who go above and beyond in quality, performance, and warranty.

I'd go with a TX650 from corsair, or if you plan on crossfiring in the future a TX or HX 850. Depending on your budget. But also make sure the card they sent you isn't bad as well.
