It ended up being a fried video card. I was home for the weekend and it was my little sisters computer. Hooked up an older power supply and that didnt fix it. She didn't tell me that all week the screen kept having random streaks going across it then blacking out. If I had known that before I would've known it was the card overheating, so I just got her a cheap new card and hooked it up. It was kind of interesting to see how expensive PCI cards are in comparison to PCI-e though while I was shopping around haha, but thanks for the replies
edit: Also I was curious if anyone had experience with something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16835114024
and how effective they actually are
