Windows 7: Computer hardlocks randomly

Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate
Computer hardlocks randomly

So I have a custom computer and that build is on my account details but I built it, installed windows 7 and non stop am having issues with the computer hardlocking. I decided to attempt to isolate the issue and I took out the graphics card and was fine for over 2 days. During those 2 days I had amazon ship me a replacement card. I put that one in and now I'm instantly hardlocking again. My computer according to estimates takes like 350W and my PSU is 550W so I don't think that's the issue. Would appreciate help. Thanks.

Does it happen if you put it in another one of the pci-e x16 slots, and what model is your PSU?
