Windows 7: BSoD and Screen Resolution problem when Upgrading to new Graphics Card

I would recommend the Corsair HX750 although the HX650 would serve you as well. - CORSAIR HX series HX650 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
With rebates they are the same price.

Hey guys, just thought I should update you guys on what I've done so far.
I went out and bought a can of compressed air so I can do a little more cleaning.
Some dust was on the GPU, PSU, and a little in the CPU fan-funnel thingy. All cleaned now.

I plan to go buy this Canada Computers | Power Supplies | Corsair Professional Series Gold AX650 Fully-Modular 650 Watt 80 PLUS Gold Certified Power Supply (CP-9020006-NA) Corsair AX 650, and I'll also buy the Arctic Silver Thermal Paste tomorrow, or the day after that.

Anyway, here's the temperature of the GPU Speccy is showing Attachment 287213 Everything seems fine, CPU, Motherboard and Hard drive are okay.

GPU drops as low as 70% but rises to 80-90% when not idling
