Dear Sirs,
I have had upgraded my PC using the following specifications which should work efficiently on any thing, it worked quite fine and well at first ,but then I had installed another Hard drive which is western digital as shown below and I had a bad type PSU of 300W in the first place ,after some time I noticed some instability and slowness in performing specially if I install a game and run another program like playing a video ;it plays so slow and disconnecting , then I got Huntkey 500W PSU thinking it might be the reason but still the same slowness problem ,is it some PC component got consumed or exhausted? or its components compatibility problem or any suggestion please?
Taking into consideration that my 4G RAM bus speed is 667 MHz and the processor front side bus is 1333 MHz , so the FSB:D RAM is 1:1

please help me diagnosing the reason of this problem and solving it urgently.

Many thanks
Sam

Make sure you don't have any RAM errors by downloading the free memtest86+ bootable CD image onto a CD and booting from that. Let it run at least a few complete passes or overnight.

If that's OK, definitely upgrade your Windows XP to SP3 and any other upgrades available.

What in the world is all of this? Either I am not understanding this correctly, or do you actually have your drive(s) partitioned into this ridiculous mess?
