If I get it to boot to safe mode yes, Also in regular windows if I get it to boot it mostly runs fine ( just slower ) but problem is it takes like 10-15 tries and I think I am damaging the rest of my hardware by hard rebooting so often ...

Since you can boot into Safe Mode, please follow these BSOD posting instructions and attach the requested files by replying to this topic. You may skip the part of step three where it instructs you to create a new topic, since you already have a topic here. There's no need to create another topic.
BTW, since this issue is most likely hardware related, please run these free hardware diagnostics. Please run them ALL and let us know the results. Anything you're not sure of, just let me know.

Hey, I do not actually have BSOD but computer freezes and I can't do anything on it. Am I maybe in the wrong section ? Could you move the thread then if needed ? =/
I tried to describe the problem as best as I could in first post.
And yeah I am pretty sure it's hardware related too. Do you have any idea what could be the cause ? I am thinking it's either the motherboard,GPU or PSU but I can't replace all of these parts..
Also my PSU is FSP500-60GHN (85)

You're not in the wrong section, as we frequently deal with hardware here. This isn't just a BSOD forum, by the way, it's a Windows Crashes, BSOD, and Hangs Help and Support forum.
I believe your problem is PSU related. A GTX 970 requires at LEAST a 500 W or greater power supply. You're at the bare requirement in terms of PSU power. Coupled with an unknown (and most likely unreliable) PSU brand and the age of the PSU (I presume it's older since you're running Windows 7), there is an extremely high chance the PSU is at fault.
Anyway, I suggest you first try a different PCI slot for your GPU, if possible, and take a picture of the PSU voltages in the BIOS for me to inspect. In the meanwhile, I'd ask a friend for a test PSU OR buy a NEW PSU from a store that accepts returns without penalty, meaning that if a new PSU still gives you trouble, you could return it without a restocking fee, etc.
BTW, if your budget is tight and you'd like to confirm your PSU is really to blame, you could use a multimeter or PSU tester (look them up online) to confirm (even though the best test is still swapping PSUs). Just be careful though — you run the risk of serious injury due to electric shock or even death if you test a PSU incorrectly!

I just connected the monitor directly to the motherboard and the screen just flickers similarly as in the video and it won't boot...
Also that is AFTER I just bought a new 600W PSU !!! So I guess it is my motherboard am I correct ? ...

Sorry to hear that. Sincerely thought it was the PSU. If you remove your graphics card and put it on a different slot, does that help? What happens if you remove the graphics card completely, and use your on-board graphics?

I don't have another slot for my GFX. As I said the screen just flickers when connected directly to the MOBO.
So I returned the PSU to the store and bought a new MOBO, Bought a new HDD too just to be sure.
Just installed windows and it works flawlessly
