The new card works! I don't know what I would have done if it didn't turn out to be the GPU

Thanks so much for the help!

I know this won't help your issue at hand, more for future reference though... Anytime I hear a rumble of thunder the tower gets shut off and unplugged from the wall until the storm passes. If I leave for an extended period, I unplug it all together.

I used to unplug for storms then got lazy and stopped, this is definitely a solid reminder though
