Hi just thought i'd reach out for some help on this website before destroying my current graphics card

So i recently bought a new computer and it came with:

- Windows 7 Home Premium x64
- 2TB HDD
- 8GB RAM (1333)
- Radeon HD 6770
- AMD FX 4100 Quad core (3.6GHZ)

Now my problem is simply when i play games i have very low fps.

Heroes of Newerth 20-30 fps
Battle field 3 20fps
Bioshock 2 20-30

And basically 20 fps for most other games

I've UN-installed and reinstalled the graphics card driver and this has seemed to do nothing

Would anybody know what the problem could be?

Need more information.
What resolution is your monitor?
What graphic settings are you using in games?
without knowing those two things it would just be wild guesses as to your problem.
For example if you are running1440x900 at medium settings ,those are terrible fps.
If you are running 1920x1080 ultra those fps are about normal.

what is the PSU brand? some generic brands can't really deliver the labeled wattage, what can cause problems like this one, low frames, high gpu noise, because the video card could be working under the required voltages.

at 1024x600 you really should be getting better frames.

Now that you mention it my computer does sound very loud
I'm not sure what the brand of the Power Supply is i think it was bundled with the tower

Would purchasing a better quality Power supply possibly fix this problem?

only if the PSU really is the problem, but to be sure of that you would need to know the psu brand and run some tests.

Loud noises are normal depending on the number of fans you have and how they are being controlled.
