bad FPS with gigabyte radeon r9 270x

hi, this problem i have with my brand new gigabyte r9 270x is driving me nuts. i bought this graphic card 3 days ago and i have correctly installed it in my PC case, i have installed the latest drivers and everything is working fine, until i wanted to try how it works with games. I was very disappointed with the results. I played GTA IV on medium settings with less than 25 FPS, and i see other people with the same graphic card and about the same powerful components as I, and they play it maxed out with 50+ FPS, i have the same problem with other games too. I checked my graphic card stats in AMD catalyst Control Center program and i ran a game and i saw that the activity bar for the graphic card didn't even go to 30%, but still the performance is very bad.

my components:

- AMD A6-5400K 4.30GHz
- Gigabyte Radeon r9 270x
- kingston HyperX DDR3 2x 4 GB 1600 MHz
- ASUS F2A85-V
- Corsair VS650, 650 W

    drivers are working properly, no viruses, hardware is working properly, card is not damaged, never overclocked.
  6. Ok now do me a favor,
    Go to control panel and open Device Manager, look then for video or graphics adapter.
    Is there a yellow triangle under the name of the gpu which is r9 200 series or does it say VGA Adapter?

    Do you have the LATEST drivers? Did you run an anti-malware scan?

    It's not supposed to say that... Updated drivers?

    Your pc is using his onboard graphics thats why your fps is bad. Install newest drivers from the manufacters website.
    Or follow these steps:
    1 -->Uninstall in device manager your VGA Adapter
    2--> Restart PC
    3--> Wait till Windows automatically updates the Adapter.

    There's probably an option in the BIOS that lets you pick the GPU/VGA to use. Mine has one...
