so i have a radeon HD 5770 and ive gotten it to boot a couple times and run for abit then played a game for about 4 mins then got bad artifacts freeze then BSOD. and 90% of the time i just get no sigel to the monitor but i can tell the computer is booting into the OS (hard drive access and windows sounds) and maybe 40% of the time the monitor will show strange  text/artifacts on boot for about 4 seconds then nothing.. idk if its the card or what.. also i dont think its over heating because the card doesnt get hot at all. anyone have ideas? also its hooked up correctly power and all. i dont think its the PSU .. its a nice modular 600W? (may be 400 i forget honestly..)
