A few months back my old 6850 overvolted and i decide to buy a new gpu asus geforce gtx560ti DirectCUII top oced to 900mhrtz and another 50 hertz my self.
My psu is a Apevia 700 watt. Since i switched to a new gpu (560ti) my screen shutters when gaming. It shutters really much when playing games like Warfighter and or Battlefield 3. My psu is making a strange grinding noise when gaming. I checked the fans and there was nothing hitting it. It seems like when the screen shutters when gaming my psu follows the shutter by making a grinding noise. Everytime the screen shutters, psu makes the grinding noise with it. The more stuff i have plugged into my pc the louder the grinding noise when gaming. This only happenend when i switched to a 560ti.
Specs:
Gpu: Asus geforce gtx560 ti DirectCUII top
Cpu: Intel i5 2500 (Non k)
Mobo: Gigabyte z68ap-d3
Ram: Adata 4gb x 2 pce
HDD: 2tb
Psu: Apevia 700watt

Well that 560 Ti need 14A + on the 12V rail for its self.

Check the voltage on 12 v rails.

And download drivesweeper. remove drivers and reinstall them. Also check for HD 6850 old drivers

When playing bf3 and or warfighter i get temps like 150F and 140F the lowest temp for bf3 and the same for warfighter. THe usage of the cpu would be 80% and ram would be 50

I would put money on the PSU being fine, and that the GPU is overheating, throttle and hence stuttering, and the noise is the fan kicking in, can't see why the fan would not be working at a lower temp. I would suggest the fan is broken, and only rotating when at 100%.
