My PC runs a little slow and I think I know why, but I just want to ask, I have a 550 power supply and I have a amd fx 9370 and a Radeon R9 290 and i have found that it is recommended 750 power supply. My question is, is that the cause of my low fps in games?

Holy mother. Dude a 9370 and a 290 alone without any other components at all besides mobo take 500w. And the very minimum recommended for a 290 is 650w. You're lucky with every else plug in you havent fried your system. Even if it isnt the PSU I would recommend switching it out ASAP

I have bought a 700 power supply, but I haven`t gotten it yet, but then that should solve it Right?

That PSU will work perfectly. But I'm not 100% sure if this is what is causing your problem. It could be since the components would throttle themselves down if they run too hot/ possibility of dying/ etc most have safety precautions in place.
