Do a clean install of the catalyst control center.
Make sure that the temperatures are not too high on any component.
Test your graphics card on another system.

Did you plug the extra 12v Pci-e power connectors in on the back edge of the graphics card.
And did you also plug in the eight pin power connector to the motherboard located next to the cpu socket ? That sound is like the Graphics card saying it does not have enough power to run it when a game is launched and running as the card it requires more power in 3d mode, when you play a game or something using it. Note the two eight pins on the card must have power connected to them.
