Recently I bought a new video card the gtx 1060. And I installed it in the old gpu slot. The pc and card worked fine. But after 2 days while playing overwatch my pc just turned off and the screen went black.

A little bit of background.
Back in 2010 a friend of mine build this pc for me and put it together. He has helped out a lot during the years whenever I had a problem. But he moved away and we don't talk anymore on friendly terms.
I have been able to fix minor issues like replacing the power supply and adding RAM. Added a new cpu fan with his help.
I called a diffrent friend of mine when the pc screen went black and all it did was reboot itself.
Things we tried
Put in my old graphic card but the problem was still there.
Disconnected all the hard drives.
Cleaning the fans and pc
Replaced the power supply from 650 to 750.
Removed the battery and let the bios reset it self to factory settings.
The last thing made my pc boot up. I had the old graphic card installed at that moment. The pc started up normally and the prblem seemed fixed. I put in my new video card and have been able to game all day without any problems. The next day the same problem occurred and I haven't been able to boot the pc up at all. The screen stays black and no reaction other then fans spinning hard. I am not totally new with computers but I am at a loss here. I'm thinking of calling professional help but I don't want to give them my hard disks. so I will take those out if I deceide to use their service. I hope the problem isn't on the hard drive then.
I hope any of you here can help me out of shed a bit of light on my problem
PS, the graphic cards both work
