So a while back, I booted up my computer, and while playing a game or something, the screen glitched/froze and the sound repeated, I turned the computer off... but upon reboot I found out I had a borked GeForce 460 card, has glitchy characters when I boot, and even when booting in windows gives me BSoD...

Fast forward to new card (700 series), however I'm noticing that almost always when I boot up my system in the morning (after being off all night) I'll get a BSoD crash, then it boots up fine and it's good to go. I can turn off the computer and back on no problems throughout the day though. Its just in the morning when the computer is "cold" that this happens. Sign of PSU going kaput? Is there a way to test the PSU? BTW It's a Corsair 520HX

I've had ram that would need to warm up before running clean. Try a memtest when the system is cold.
