Default Pc just s.l..o...w....s down

Setup: 2.93ghz p4, ATI x800xl, 1gb of ram, 200gb SATA, and my new
10-Bay BIO II ATX Window Case w/450-Watt PS.

My computer worked fine before i got the ATX case on my old gateway case. When i installed my new case everything went wrong. I can't play CS source or BF2, can barely watch videos and the music just goes in slow mo. When playing games, my pc just goes in slow mo and then crashes to desktop. Anyone know what is going on? I think i might need a new power supply. thanks

Yeah, could be your PSU, considering you've got that X800.

How's your cooling inside the new case? Might be worth checking out.

nonononono dont buy a cheap PSU. get a $50.00+ one. thats the last thing you'll want is ur psu frying everything in your computer. did you try reformatting? making sure everything is nice and snug in position? making sure no settings got changed? you should check this stuff first, if the power supply went you wouldnt be able to use your computer anymore
