New build keeps locking up?

Hello all, i just finished putting together my first build. The build contains
-MSI 785GM-E65 mobo
-AMD Athlon ii x3 435 processor (completely stock right now)
-Samsung 500gb 7200rpm 16mb cache hard drive
-2gb Super Talent DDRr 1333mhz ram

I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

I am having a few problems with it though. The internet is terribly slow. I was first getting download speeds of 750 bytes a second then i installed the disc that came with the mobo and downloaded all the drivers. Was getting about 10kb/s. Then i went into windows update and downloaded just the Lan driver. Now i am getting anywhere from 25kb/s to 35kb/s. This should be way higher shouldn't it? My last pc that was from 2000 was getting download speeds of 180kb/s. My laptop right next to me is going way faster on the internet.

Also when i am trying to download the windows updates it always freezes up and just sits here. It will do this anytime i am trying to download anything.

Any help? :o

    Any questions or clarifications, feel free to ask, during this TS process. It could definately be a poorly seated RAM stick or GPU ... It could be POOR COOLING ...
    ... It could be a brass standoff, making intermittent contact w/back of mobo.
