With the card installed are you able to access safe mode? If it locks up in safe mode I would return the card. Does your motherboard have onboard video and have you disabled it?

If you have another PC you can test with you can try the card in that machine.

What is the make and model# of your computer/motherboard?
Remove the card. With the new PSU, does the computer still lock up without the video card? If so, then it is not the video card.
As JMPC suggested, with the video card installed, boot into Setup (Bios) go to Integrated Peripherals. Make sure the onboard video is disabled. It should do this automatically when a video card is inserted. If this still fails, return the card. If the new card fails, try updating the Bios.

Then it could be the PSU. Try another PSU if possible that has more wattage output. With the other psu everything is ok then that confirms the psu problem. As the Nivida tech guy said the card requires a 300watt PSU (minimum) you have a 350 watt psu. To be safe it is always recommended to have more than you need because of other hardware you have installed as well.
