    AIMAN SNK,
    Welcome to SF and the answer to your questions is no, this PSU is likely bad but if it is or was performing well and connected properly then more power is never a danger as the components only draw the power they need.

    As linnemeyerhere has stated. You can't have to much power supply.
    If you computer demands lets say 300W a 1000 W power supply will only put out 300W.
    A quality power supply for your system I would recommend a Corsair or Seasonic in the 650W range.
    Your video card requires a 500W or higher.

    If you only bought it 3 weeks ago take it back to the store for a new one. If you built it, return the PSU.

    Make sure all cables are connected and there is power coming from the wall outlet.
