Might be a defective card- that's an obvious memory problem beit overclocking or heat or simply bad memory. Since you're not overclocking and it's not hot, bad memory would be my guess. There was a rash of cards with bad video memory this past 12 months or so- I had a bad one myself. And the replacement they send also had bad RAM! Call up tech help and explain your problem- you might be able to RMA it if it's not too late.
Also, never hurts to have a better PSU! I wouldn't feel bad about that move
But my advice: return that card, and get one that's not defective.
