Intermittent black screen

Here's the system:

 

Graphics:

AMD Radeon R7-200 (Sapphire)

Desktop:

OS: Win10 Pro 64 bit

Driver:

Radeon Crimson v. 16.200.1035.1001

Display:

ASUS VE-247 on HDMI

Motherboard:

ASUS Z-97-A

CPU:

I5 4460 3.2mhz

Power Supply:

Sentey MBP 750 750 watts

RAM:

8 GB DDR3

 

Problem:

Intermittently, the screen will go black with a brief message that there is "no HDMI". The drives are still running, but it takes a cold boot to restart the video. The behavior is not related to any specific program and it only occurs after an hour or more of running the system. I suspect this is a failure of the video card. Nothing shows in the Win Event Viewer. Do I need to look for a new card, or are there other things to check before throwing more money in the pot?

Thanks for your ideas.
