Possible PSU issue, request advice.

Recently I got an HD6950 and it worked fine for a bit and now I am having an issue where randomly in game the screen goes black and then comes back. Trying to determine if the problem is the video card or the PSU.

 

AFAIK the HX620 should have more then enough power for a HD6950 yes? I have a TT open with AMD on the card but there seems to be no good way to determine if the problem is the card of the PSU. I put a GTX 640 instead but it draws so much less power it may not be a problem. I did get a BSOD using the 640 though.

 

Any ideas for further trouble shooting?

The ATI 2 Gig 6950 card is rated at about 256 watts under load and the GTX 460 is what I think you are talking about which is about 270 watts under full load. And yes depending on how the system is configured this PSU should be no problem. I would suspect another issue as ustinh100 suggested from what you posted. And the fact you got an Error with both cards.
