    Its most probably caused by the crappy psu (power supply unit) not putting enough power out for your new card!!!!

    The box that the card came in should have a minimum spec for psu on it, you need what it says or higher!!!!

    Also, have a look at the label on your psu, if it says Bestec on it (and it almost undoubtedly does) then replace is as soon as you possibly can!!!!! They are seriously seriously crap and if it decides to go it WILL kill your mobo too!!!! I have a blown one here and I've tested it, it gives 18 volts on the 5 volt standby, which is very very bad and it killed the mobo it was attached to!!!!
