There are four possibilities for the problem : 1. Faulty GPU. 2. Underpowered/Cheap PSU. 3. Driver issue. 4. A BIOS update may needed.

BTW is it happening with every game ?

What PSU do you have? If it isn't a problem with the PSU then you have a bad GPU, you haven't overclocked it have you? If you have it might not be stable anymore.

Radeon HD 6670 - requires 17 Ampere on +12V rail and a 400W PSU minimum.

So replacing the PSU may solve the problem. But buy a decent one like XFX, Corsair, SeaSonic. I can suggest you that try to borrow a PSU from someone to test before buying one. Good luck.

The company that built my PC said that they upgraded my PCU because I told them to also upgrade my GPU to the AMD Radeon HD 6670, So not unless they put the wrong one in ? although they seemed pretty confidant that It was the right one I also had to pay extra for the upgraded PCU

What is the make/model of PSU ? And 250W is a underpowered PSU for anything.

Yes, open the left side panel of the case, and look at the sticker on PSU, it should help you determine the wattage and make/model of PSU. But I think its a no name and local made PSU.

A 750W PSU should be enough for that GPU, provided its a good make. So as I said you earlier try to replace the GPU by borrowing it from someone to test or the PSU, to isolate the faulty part. First try with a replaced GPU. Good luck.
