Strange GPU Behavior

I just finished my new computer build (first time) and I have serious lag problems in games I believe I have the specs to run just fine. The build is below:
ASROCK B85 pro4 mobo
ASUS 2GB Graphics Cards R7260X-DC2OC-2GD5 graphics card
intel core i7-2700k cpu

When I initially installed all of the drivers that came with the hardware, most games seemed to be dropping frames. I realized that a program that came with the gpu called GPU Tweak was limiting the performance of the computer. I took all of the sliders on GPU Tweak to max and that fixed the issue in the less demanding games, however seems to have made the lagging problem much worse in more demanding ones (like injustice and league of legends). I don't believe I am pushing any of my components beyond there specs. Am I wrong? Help!

Yeah, you dont just move all of the sliders over, that is the wrong way to overclock your GPU. Put everything back to its stock settings. What power supply do you have with your system?

Did you update your graphics drivers from the AMD website before doing any of that or were you running on the drivers that came on the disc?

Thanks for responding. I have a SeaSonic 520W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply installed. I have installed only the drivers on the disc that came with the hardware, however, gpu tweak seems to think that my drivers are up to date. When I use the software that I got from the AMD website to update my drivers (DriverTuner) it sends back an error 'invalid data recieved'. I even tried a secondary driver updater (DriverToolKit) and got the same error.

As an update, I had a friend help me get up to date on AMD drivers. I am now running beta 4.16. The issues persist.
