If you live in the EU it is almost certainly still under warranty. My advice would be to take it back.

In answer to your #6 - yes, it certainly could be.
While the maximum power draw for your video card is rated at 400W it will only hit this occasionally, but when it does you only have 30W left over for the rest of the system which is not enough. I am not an expert on PSUs but I would have thought that with that video card a PSU rated at 600W would be an acceptable minimum.

I had this identical problem once and it had me beating my head against a wall.
Turned out that my front panel power switch button was shorting out and thus sending a shutdown signal to the power supply. Replaced the switch and no more problems. Interestingly, on that same machine a year later it started auto-rebooting at random times. After pounding some more lumps on my head, I disabled the reset button on the front panel, and no more resets. The reset button was shorting out.
You might try testing that out; disable the power button at the motherboard, then cross the two contacts on the motherboard with a flat-headed screwdriver and the computer will start up. Run it for a couple of days and see if your problem disappears. If it does, your power switch is bad.
