It's possible. If the new video card is the only thing that is new...and this odor is new...then it would have to be related to the new video card install. High performance video cards can run very hot...so you want to make sure your computer isn't dirty (to maximize cooling air flow)...and you want to make sure that the fan on the video card is operating properly.

But yes...it is possible that a unusual odor could be due to the new video card install...but this shouldn't last very long.
