What could be the cause of this?
I have had a Nvidia GTX 550 ti for a few months and I recently got a new computer less than a month ago.
I have a 660w PSU that I put in the computer to try and power the GPU.
When I put in the Graphics card in but dont connect it to the PSU, the computer boots fine and the fan on the GPU works.
When I put the Graphics card in AND power it, the computer just blinks and makes a weird noise for a couple of seconds and then shuts off.
What could be the potential cause of this?
Not sure if this extra bit of info is needed, but I'm running Windows 8.

Do you have the right number of plugs from the PSU into the graphics card?

Are you sure you have good enough power supply to power the card?
Disconnect any other hardware (CD/DVD drive, memory card readers, etc) in your computer other than the HDD, the card, and other important shit, then try to power it on.
Also, find a manual for your PC, it'll tell you what the beeps mean by how many there are.

The graphics card may be defective.
