Computer Being Very Slow

Hello, I recently made a computer (to be used primarily for gaming), and for some reason, it is super slow. it takes forever to open the start menu and run applications, and Team Fortress 2 will bug out, freeze and repeat whatever sound went last. When I first installed the OS and updated (Windows 7 64 bit) it played Minecraft and Team Fortress 2 fantastically. After turning it off to go out for a football game, it took forever to boot up. I saw somewhere that I should install the chipset(I'd only installed the Lan and Driver for my graphics card). i did, and that din't help. I installed the Motherboard sound driver as well. My reading are is as follows from the BIOS:35 degrees C
VCORE Voltage is 1.308
3.3 Voltage is 3.384
5 Voltage is 5.078
12V Voltage is 12.149
VDA2.5V Voltage is 2.520
Northbridge Frequency is 2000 MHz

My Specifications Are:
AMD FX-6300 Six Core CPU
ASUS M5A97 LE R2 motherboard
G Skill Sniper Series F3-14900CL9Q
Asus Radeon R9 270X GPU
Rosewill 600W PSU(not sure if this matters, will post actual model if needed)
Thermal Take Epic Edition Chassis
Toshiba HDD( might be the problem, its a 2.5 inch HDD which I was given from my brother, its 640 GB storage space)
My Optical Drive is one I got from a friend, although I'm pretty sure it isn't the problem/

Sorry about such a long post, and thank you for your time.

    I use CC Cleaner and Spybot and they work just good. Also check for programs that are running in the background. Make sure you have the latest drivers too.
