My computer keeps crashing while gaming every so often with this card & states that I either have a bad GPU driver or bad GPU. I uninstalled & reinstalled the drivers and am still getting the same error. Should I just get a replacement GPU?

The temp never exceeds 65° and I have an EVGA 750 watt PSU. I would think 750 watts would be enough for this card or maybe I'm wrong?
