AMD Radeon R7 270 Failing

I recently switched Graphics Cards from an NVidia GeForce GTX 270 to AMD Radeon R7 270. I've installed the AMD Catalyst Driver from the Official AMD site, but every now and again the driver will fail, deforming the opened applications and spreading the colours into shapes filling my screen and forcing me to reboot. This has happened quite a few times so far, I'm not sure whether or not it's the Graphics Card, Driver or Motherboard. This normally happens when in using an Internet Browser, Have tried using Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer (For some reason) and Opera. All have crashed, Applications and Games seem to hold fine for a while, then after an hour or 2 it dies.


Attached in an Image of what my screens look like when the Graphics give.
