So I recently purchased a GTX 750Ti GPU. I stuck it in my Dell Optiplex 790 desktop and it worked great! That is, until after a couple hours passed. As my grandmother and I were about to depart on a walk in the park, I noticed that the picture on my monitor had started slowly getting dimmer, at first I thought it was just me but I soon realized it was indeed getting darker, and it took around 5 minutes for it to reach the point shown below (image 1). I tried different cables, different monitors, different drivers, reseating the graphics card, RAM, hard drive, and even the power supply. Once I installed the old GT 210 that had been in that box, it worked fine again. However once I tried putting the 750Ti back in, it instantly went back to that dim screen shown in the first image. I really would like help trying to diagnose this. Any tips I will try as soon as I can. Here are my PC specs:
Dell Optiplex 790
Intel Core i7-2600K
7GB DDR3 PC3-10600
500GB WD Blue HDD
Previously a Geforce 210 (GT 210)
580W PSU

Was the GPU purchased new or have any kind of warranty?

 

If purchased on eBay, you have at least 45 days of protection & 60 days with PayPal, these periods may have increased a bit, has been awhile since I last opened a case. 

 

Not much other advice I can offer, w/out knowing when & where the GPU was purchased. 

 

Good Luck! :)
