Windows 7: BSOD happening all of a sudden

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

My first instinct is a power supply problem. What PSU do you have?

Can you fill out your system specs more completely in your profile?

That power supply should be enough assuming your other peripherals are also rated for it and the PSU is functioning properly. The minimum for your graphics card is 400 W: GeForce GTX 550 Ti - Specifications - GeForce

Can you complete the installation with the older card plugged in? Does the crash display which driver is causing problems?
