Hi, Well I have a
Phenom II 945 Quad
PNY GTS 250
500gb HD
4gb DDR3 1600 Ram
Asus Mobo

I had a very crappy 680w psu and it fryed or the connectors went bad within 2 weeks of the purchase so i bought a better but 100w less psu.

Since the addition my FPS in wow Went from 100-150 On High Settings In Normal Areas and 40-60 In High Populated areas
to 30-50 on LOW settings in normal areas and 10-25 in High Populated areas on LOW settings. Now if there are any tests I could run what can I do?

So the new PSU is 580 watts? It sounds like the system isn't getting enough power or perhaps the new one you bought is defective. It may be a good idea to return it and get a decent 650 to 700 watter.

Of course, the other solution is that when the 680w went tits up it damaged other components...

That's what I was getting. When the PSU went down it pissed on either the PNY or the memory.
