To start things off, lets get some specs out there:
CPU AMD Athlon II X4 955
Motherboard Biostar TA970 AM3+ AMD970 R
GPU MSI Radeon 7850 2GB
Diablotek 575W PSU
8GB 1333MHZ RAM
Roswill NIC (Can easily take out, I threw it in to see if it would help network speeds)
Twin 640GB 7200RPM HDDs
Windows 7 64bit
The new parts are the Motherboard, PSU, and the GPU. The problem came about after I installed the motherboard. essentially, the internet is ridiculesly slow, as well as simple windows operations. I managed to do a speedtest, and my ping came back as 5075 (usually around 25), download speed was .48mbps (usually 76mbps) and my upload was a surprsing 48mbps. More worrying is simple things like opening up the documents library or MS Word can take anywhere from 30secs to a over a minute. Even while they are open, they will lag incredebly. I did not do a clean install of Windows 7 (which is what I have done in the past when installing a new motherboard), however I cleaned off the old drivers as best I can and installed the new ones from the included discs.
I've looked online for some solutions and here is what I have currently tried: downloading any updated drivers from the internet. That failed because the internet is one of the problems. Checking to make sure the thermal compound was good resulted in determining it was...good. I swapped the RAM to different channels and even tried pulling a stick out, resulted in nothing significant. All the connections on the board look good as well.
Interestingly enough, playing games like Bioshock Infinite on Ultra works without a stutter. Its just simple computing tasks that get hung up. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
