Computer Shuts down during gpu stress test and while gaming

My computer will pretty much instantly shutdown when I do the furmark test, and I can't get through entire games of csgo without my computer shutting down. I've already replaced the psu and so at this point I'm pretty sure it's the gpu that is causing my issues but I wan't some second opinions before I go drop a couple hundred on a new card. I can run cpu test and my computer will handle them fine, but as soon as i start the furmark test my computer just completly powers down, no bluescreen, or anything, just everything in the computer shuts down and then it wont start back up for a few minutes. and by won't start up i mean like parts of it will turn on, like the gpu fans will, the cpu fan will,and the psu fan will, but not all of the case fans. I've heard the mobo could also be the issue but I don't know why it would only shut down under gpu stress.
My parts list is
Intel i5 3470
Asrock h77m refurb from Microcenter
ram is some offbrand thing but it's 8gb 1600
Gpu is a PNY GTX 770 that I bought used off craigslist
PSU is a EVGA 600w bronze
case is the corsair carbide 200r

  1. Since the MB is a refurbished, that would be my first thought after the PSU (which you already replaced). But of course, the card could be defective too. Remove the card and run off the integrated for a while for a test. See if the shutdown still happens. Run Furmark and CS:GO as best you can and try to get it to fail again. Or if you have access to one, try another card.
