Default really slow performance on new components

I am setting up a new system, and i've had nothing but negative results. The whole computer runs very slowly, installing windows takes over 5 hours, and once installed the processor is completely used up by moving a window on screen. I don't understand what the problem is. I think i've done everything correctly.

ASUS A8N-SLI Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard

eVGA 256-P2-N515-AX Geforce 7800GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16

AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor

4x Crucial 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) ECC Unbuffered System Memory (2GB)

2x (raid 0)Western Digital Caviar RE WD1600SD 160GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive

PLEXTOR Black IDE DVD Burner Model PX-740A/SW-BL
RAIDMAX Ninja ATX-918WBP Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 450watts PS2 ATX12V SATA Ready Power Supply


Processor jumps up to 100% when i try to accomplish simple tasks.
Nero took over an hour to install.
