Under performing Card

I just completed a new built. Started playing Borderlands 2 on High everything. FPS was only about 10-15 sometimes lower. Tried L4D and the FPS was only 15-20 on High everything as well. Ran 3DMark 11 and only got a combined score of 3200, predicted was 5500. Have updated my drivers and installed the GPU drivers a couple times.

CPU: i5-3570k OC @ 4.2 GHz
RAM: 8 GB Patriot @ 1600
GPU: MSI R7870 Hawk
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty 750 W
MoBo: Asus P8Z77-V Pro

Anyone have any ideas as to what I could do to fix this?

Try and reinstall drivers. Also see in your CCC whether you've enabled Anti Aliasing or tessellation or something -- might be causing some FPS issues.

I unistalled the drivers using ATIMan's utilty and then reinstalled and disabled AA and tessellation in CCC. Still no noticable change in the gameplay or 3dMark score.

I could be wrong but might be the card not getting enough power. Also read some bad about OCZ PSUs somewhere. Had a friend with a 6950 getting s**tty frames with one game in particular, but that was a s**tty HKC Psu. Could be faulty cables,faulty card,faulty pci slot. :(
