I doubt seriously it may have something to do with your cpu, ram or psu.
You have enough power to run that card, not unless the psu you got isn't that great.
Tell me the PSu model number and brand you got. :/
Call your friend and ask him if he had any issues with gfx card,
If he did ask him to explain what happen and what he did to try to remedy the issue.
Also what I meant by flashed wrong, if he did attempt that to fix whatever is wrong with the card now.
The garbage mess you see on the screen and different languages could be due to a bad flash.
I will tell you this that graphics card has oc and speed problem.
Be sure to ask him if he has a warrenty remaining on the card.
If so have him give you the receipt or if its in one of his store accounts like newegg.
To email it to you and get the rma process started up.
Who knows you might end up with a better card from sapphire.
If they decide to give you a new one instead of fixing it.
