    It's may be not only the power supply. Check your graphic card (I assume you kept it and are still using it). Your PC stats would be a great help,because- either your power supply can't ''feed'' the motherboard and your GPu,or your graphic card have some problems,so it's slowing things down.
    p.s- +1 about power supply,it may be the reason

    I wonder if all the proper motherboard drivers were installed... Good computer builders don't get thrown...

    If you can get it to run long enough, go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager to see if you have any red, yellow, or black flags for any of the devices installed in your computer.
    If so, re-install the drivers for those devices. If that does not work, replace the device... regardless of whether you have already done this.
