Pc Help Please

  1. Hey, I upgraded my graphics card and PSU today and ever since Windows has been a lot slower - slower starting up and slower in general also. Performance is better in games though, which is good as that's why I bought the graphics card.
    The light on my case is ALWAYS blinking and I can ALWAYS hear the little whirring sounds, both things that used to occasionally occur when opening a programme or generally when the computer was thinking, but when I check my CPU usage it is not high at all (at 5% right now). My memory is also only just under half full.
    I cannot think what the problem is, I'm sure I've done something wrong - here are my specs:

    Intel Core 2 Q9400
    Asus P5Q-Pro
    Radeon HD 6950
    4GB RAM
    XFX 850w
    Windows7 64-bit

    My old specs were the same but with two HD 4850s and a Storm 900w PSU.
