Just installed a new PSU it’s a upgrade from my 450w to a 600w. My computer runs like absolute crap now. It boots up slow and games that are intense are super laggy and stutter. Triple checked all my connections have no clue

Post the brand and model name or number of both, not all PSUs are of equal quality and some are just outright dangerous.

The first thing to be impacted by a weak PSU is the graphics and even more so if there is an add on GPU present.

Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here, this will provide us with information about your computer hardware + any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s.

To publish a Speccy profile to the Web:

In Speccy, click File, and then click Publish Snapshot.

In the Publish Snapshot dialog box, click Yes to enable Speccy to proceed.

Speccy publishes the profile and displays a second Publish Snapshot. You can open the URL in your default browser, copy it to the clipboard, or close the dialog box.
