not 100% sure but a good place to start would be the power pack these days 350w is a minimum graphics cards especially with fans consume alot of power and this can slow the computer down.as a note changed my power pack to 400w and noticed a difference just opening folders original was 250w hope this helps

right click your task bar and select 'task manager' click 'processes' and look for the process thats using all the cpu time here. what is its/thier names please? for example 'explorer.exe'

sorry just to be clear. only note the process/s that have a high value number in the 'cpu' column.
