I recently purchased this graphics card:
http://www.amazon.co...rds=amd hd 7770

Every game I play crashes after 1-2 minutes including Saints Row 3, GTA and even games like Dota 2 and Don't Starve. The longest session I have played a game for is 15 minutes before my screen goes black, goes to desktop and the sound loops of the game and my computer becomes unresponsive.
I have tried clean uninstalling using the AMD uninstaller, and re-installing using the suggested download from AMD. I also tried installing from the disk but had the same issue. I have checked all drivers are up to date. I have also applied this fix from Microsoft, which only worked on Left 4 Dead but instead of the game crashing it would minimize, re open play and freeze a few seconds later, repeating, and I'd still have to force it to shut:

My system:

Windows 7
AMD Quad Core Processor
Corsair Builder Series CX 500 PSU

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thank you, but I had the issue resolved.
My card was faulty, new one is perfectly fine :)
