    it might be overheating, or it may not be compatible with your motherboard, check the websites of the motherboard/card. Someone else should be able to provide more help.

    If the monitor is all black then how can you see the game? Do you mean hear the game through the speakers? I'm guessing your card might be overheating so I suggest you go check your temps.

    It's either not getting enough power, or it's overheating. You'll need at least two pc case fans to run that card well. You'll also need a reasonable power supply. What case/fans do you use, and which power supply do you have?

    Sounds like there's enough cooling there (btw do you mean Akasa?) the power supply could be an issue though.

    That's not really a very good power supply, but the fact that the same problem occurs means the PSU isn't at fault. The graphics card temperature you've stated is fine. I'd suggest replacing the card under warranty to rule that one out.
