I'm afraid your video card may be faulty.
I myself have an ATI and Corsair build. Installed without a hitch.
You'll need to replace the card. Good thing it is new.
If you haven't, buy some fans for your system as well and install them on your casing. That card runs hot. I have 5x120mm fans in my desktop and it keeps my system nice and cool when I run Crysis or Fallout 3.
But yeah, don't try and fiddle with that card anymore. Put it back in the box and replace it.

Please rate if this was helpful, or comment if you'd like further assistance. Have a good week!

I have a dell dib75r pinevalley mainboard I need to know whats the max power supply i can apply to this motherboard pls. for graphics card

The stock 305W power supply guarantees 20 to 25W on the +5VSB rails and 150 to 170W on the 3.3v/5V Rails. Many GTX 750 TI now say (300W PSU that can supply 18 AMPS MIN on the 12v rail aka 216W on the 12v rail.

Many EPS 12v power supplies only guarantee 10 to 15W on the +5VSB and 125 to 130W on the 3.3v Rails.

This means you buy the supply and it may not even turn on. If it does it wont work with the 960 card installed.

Buying a power supply is not a single 12v rail and thats the only thing it uses.

There are many users who should have gotten a corsair RM1000 but instead chose an ATX not EPS 12v power supply at 500 to 750W and they have the Solid Amber Light of *****. EPS12v 2.92 for 750W and up guarantees 150W on the 3.3v rail, 20W on the +5vsb rail and 375W on the 12v Rails minimum.

I have issues with the second ATI FirePro V7800 card. I am running Window 7 pro - 64 bit. The motherboard is ASUS Sabertooth X58. Intel Corei7. Corsair 24 GB. Both two cards were working fine...

In order to further troubleshoot this issue, I would recommend the following:

Uninstall the ATI drivers from your computer.
Shut down the computer.
Remove the ATI card from your computer, and connect your monitor to the onboard video adapter.
Turn on the computer.
Ensure the ATI software was infact removed.
Shut down the computer
Reinstall the ATI video Card
Turn On the computer
Reinstall the ATI drivers ensuring to select the proper "CrossFire" configuration

I have 2 ati 4890 gfx cards and they have 2 6-pin power connectors on them. do i hook up 2 6-pins to them or 1 6+2pin to each?

Either way for as long as you can supply the 12v power to both gfx cards. You will not be able to use your gfx card if it isn't powered.

I've been getting low pretty low FPS for quite some time in Left 4 dead. Right now I get about 40 and it drops to 30 with a hoard. My FPS actually increased when i installed windows 7 64 from xp 32. I have...

All research comes to CPU bottlenecking...
Left 4 Dead is CPU intensive.
Seems you have plenty of CPU and GPU so bottlenecking doesn't seem to make sense but then we are talking PC"S.

2 things I would try first....
1) Your ATI cat driver is the latest right if not get the latest 64x drivers for your card.
2nd if that is already done, the beauty of the intel core duo is it runs cool ( ONLY DO THIS IF ALL YOUR TEMPS ARE FINE) so a tiny overclock wouldn't hurt it.
See if overclocking CPU it a tad, doesn't improve performance.
