Default Problem with Artifacts

Hello everyone, this is my first post i`am sorry i dont have time to introduce myself atm, i have some urgent problem i would be very thankful if you could assist me with your thoughts.

Bought recently GPU (Strix GTX 960), had problems at start with it, with artifacts, but that was all solved by updating my bios. Now after couple of months, it started showing artifacts while booting and in windows. I tried reseating gpu and cleaning PCIe, couple of times, it only got worse. First it was only artifacts, then yellowish/greenish screen and so on with colors.
When i connected to integrated gpu everything went fine.

Gpu never overheated, max temp recorded was 60c.

My question is, could it be that gpu is faulty or is it PSU fault ? Or even maybe PCIe slot?
My PSU is kinda crappy power color 600W, but i didnt have any problems with it and gpu isnt under load while booting so im thinking its not that. It has enough wattage to cover gpu and rest of the hardware.

Need to check every option before i RMA it, it takes so long before they return it

And no, i dont have any friend atm with PC that i could try it on/

My rig :
i5 3450
MSI MS-7798 board
Strix GTX 960

Thanks in advance!
