Windows 7: GT210 causing computer to shutdown after a few minutes

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
GT210 causing computer to shutdown after a few minutes

Computer runs fine with a gt550 installed, if i install the gt210 as well as the gt550 the system wont even recognize the card, i also swapped them between the 2 PCI express slots but no difference.

When i run the gt210 by itself it boots to about the login screen and then the screen switches off and the computer runs for a bit then just shuts down completely.

Booting into safe mode makes no difference.

The card is brand new but i've read people having the same issues.

I had to remove the heat sink so it would fit as the cable plugs are under the pci slot so there isnt much room for big graphic cards so im not sure if its overheating
