Freezing and extremely long boot times

Here are my components, if anyone knows of any problems with any of these components, please let me know. My boot times are close to 10 minutes, Once in windows the computer will start freezing every 2 minutes where i am unable to do anything for 30 seconds to a minute at a time. I have switched MOBO, switched ram, updated bios... I am a newbie and cant seem to get this running properly.

What kind of issues can you get from not having a big enough power supply.
