Hey, I recently bought this card but am having a bit of a problem with it and was wondering if anyone can help.
after playing a game for about 30 mins, the screen cuts out and says no signal, the sound glitches and the card fans come…

..on at full whack. I've tried setting the fans to kick in earlier, re installing the drivers, lowering the game settings but nothing works. If anyone could help I'd really appreciate it.
Idle temp is about 29 - when playing its about 50

I don't think it's the cpu, I ran prime95 for 10 hours with no problems and it averaged 54 C
Could it be my psu? to be fair it really isnt the best quality and might not be able to carry enough power to the card?

Is this a good match for the AMD FX-6300? I'm planning to buy my build soon and this is what I'm hoping to go for. Any advice would really help too thanks!

Yeah,it would
Pair it with Intel i5 Hasswel/ivy brigde CPU or with some of the AMD FX 6xxx or 8xxx CPU,and better get Vishera instead of buldozer if you are getting AMD CPU
