Hi

My old Power Supply was dying on me, so I went to EBC Computers to get a new one. The installation went well and everything seemed to check out, but the next day, after it's installation (and unfortunately during WoW) the computer goes choppy after a varied amount of time. It appears to stay choppy until the computer restarts, hence it turns to normal, only until a later time when it returns. It has happened even during simple web browsing.
My best guess is the Power Supply, but I'm not sure how...
Can anybody help me please?

Ok so you got a new Video card also?
If you have the box the Power Supply can it get us the Brand and Model or remove the side cover of the pc and the power supply will have a label on it listing the brand, model, total watts and amperage on the 12v rail(s).

What video card did you have before?

It appears you are low on Available Physical Memory @ 153.27 MB the new video card may be reserving some.
