    Looks like a power problem to me, although on paper you should be in good shape. Can one assume the machine works perfectly with either of the video cards installed just by itself? Other possibility is ambient temp in the case is high enough with both video cards to cause problems for the RAM. If you remove the side panel and point a desk fan in the general direction of the motherboard you can test that possibility.
