Unless the PSU is defective I wouldn't suspect it to be the problem here. Before returning it I'd check CPU and GPU temps to see if there's a problem. Running a stress test to get an idea of overall system performance may help to isolate a potential problem. There's some good articles right here at Tom's to help you with this that include links to apps you'll need. Let us know what you find after testing your system.

The psu doesn't have to be defective to be the problem... It can be a simple matter of not having the right too for the job.
You really don't see a problem with someone pairing the current flagship gpu with what's just a decent, low end psu?
While I would not recommend that particular model for any high end build, the fact that it's new and has sufficient output, if working properly, leads me to believe there may be another problem. It's at least worth the trouble to test the system first.
