So here I am, excited, looking forward to max Crysis 3 and I instantly noticed terrible FPS? After about 30 seconds, my PC turned off. I'm not that great with computers but I hooked up the card myself, upgraded from a GTX 560. My guess is that the power supply isn't great enough, can someone please help me on this, see if you can find any more information on the power supply because that's all I get from it.

Power supply maybe but maybe its a dated motherboard dt cant detect the gpu.you might need to update to d latest bios. Also you wont be able to max crysis as ur cpu wil bottleneck ur gpu. Your cpu really dated imho.

It is detected, I updated everything, just bad frame rates in Crysis. Will try another game soon, but the manual for this card said that my processor is more than good enough for my graphics card so no bottlenecking there for sure.

Crysis 3 is a cpu n gpu intensive game. Crysis 3 benefits from hyper threading n your cpu def bottlenecking ur gpu. It might say min req on the manual to run but never sed you will get optimal or high performance.

Okay so I tried Guild Wars 2, still lagging, actually, I think it ran better on the old card. Sigh, what do I do?

Buy or upgrade ur cpu. It might involve changing motherboards but not sure as im not well informed with amd processors but for sure I knw ur cpu bottlenecking ur gpu.

I like how no one but the author pointed out it could be a power supply. Judgding by your problem its seems most definately a PSU problem due to your PC shutting off. If it didnt shut off perhaps then I could consider if a CPU problem.

What exact model PSU are you using?

That's the thing, I'm not sure, I can tell you exactly what I see written on it:
Thermaltake 600W, ATK 12V 2.3 model TR2-600NL2NC

In the booklet it said it needed a 42A, 12V, not sure what this mean and it kinda worried me because my PSU says nothing of this sort so I tried it anyway.

Can you recommend an affordable CPU then?

How do I do this?
 
Even if there is a CPU bottleneck, it still doesn't explain the crashing.

Solve one problem at a time. Set your card to run at the settings I suggested above. If that solves the problem, you just saved yourself from wasting $$ on a new CPU (although having an upgrade is not bad)

Download and install EVGA PrecisionX from the EVGA website. It will allow you to set the core clock and memory clock speeds of the graphics card.

I have it, what I see is +0 for both clocks, what do I set that to?

I'm not quite sure on how to answer that question.

Are you gaming on a single 1080p monitor? If so you should return that 780 ti, buy a 780 and get a better processor with the extra 200$, because a 780 already crushes everything at that resolution.

Edit: I just looked at your post and yes it does appear you are just gaming on a single 1080p monitor. You should do what I said above.

The card was actually an Xmas gift, can't return it. It's okay, I'll get a new CPU, got a budget of $300, any suggestions?

Furthest it goes is -105MHz on GPU clock and -502MHz on Mem clock. What now?

I see, that's understandable and a nice gift to be given! If you buy a new processor you are more than likely going to need a new Mobo as well especially if you are going with Intel (recommended) because they are not compatible with AMDs AM3 socket (which is what you currently have).

300$ is going to be cutting it a little short though as you will probably need more like 400$ unless you really cheap out on the mobo.

I'll get the cash, just recommend me what mobo and PCU to buy.
