Hi all, I just purchased a new MSI Twin Frozr GTX 770 on black friday.  After installing it I found that games that rely heavily on the GPU (e.g. Final Fantasy XIV, Crysis 3) load extremely slowly or just freeze the computer immediately.  Control usually comes back after about 5 minutes at most.  Also, I found no issues while playing less graphics intensive games, such as League of Legends or Dark Souls (however, in Dark Souls, some areas did not load texture or really anything after a little bit).  I believe that my PSU is not sufficient for my new GPU and as such, removed my new GTX 770 and reinstalled my old EVGA GTX 560ti so that I would not have any issues with power; however, once I reinstalled my 560ti the issues did not simply go away.  I am beginning to wonder if it was the PSU in the first place.  I am really not sure what to do on this one, I have searched throughout the internet for a solution, but plenty of people have my problem, but there didn't seem to be any documentation of it being fixed.  Please, any help would greatly be appreciated.  Let me know if you need any more information.
