Return the computer to dell if possible, and just build it yourself.

Hard to tell anything from those pics, I didn't see a cpu fan at all though.

Honestly, you don't seem very pc literate and delving any further into your pc could quite easily void your warranty, I recommend you phone Dell to be honest.

True has an important point, don't do anything else physical to it.. just call Dell and tell them whats up

How about installing the newest drivers available for your video card. I'm sure the one's installed by Dell aren't exactly up to date.

Do you have the latest drivers for the card? Maybe do a little research on it to find out what drivers work best.

Do you have enough power going to it? I read that it's a power hungry card, it might be short on power. What OS are you running?

I have a question: Why did you buy a 3D modeling computer if you are playing games on it? ...Maybe I'm missing something here. Kinda slow today actually. I was driving back to school and I turned on a red light...I had sworn it was green, but I guess it was red. I might go take a nap...
