When I was play CS:GO, I decided to tab out to skip a song on Grooveshark. But instead, the song slowed down as if my computer was high then I couldn't move my mouse. What I had to do was force a power down by holding the power button -_- can anyone explain what happened?

I just updated them so that should be it.
Alright. Well based on that I am wondering if it is a power supply issue. In this case, I wonder if the power supply is enough for what you are running. I say that because the video card you have recommends a 400W PSU and that's just the card. Not including everything else in the system. So it could be that your PSU is giving you all that it can.

Well, peeps on this forum said that this setup with a new PSU and graphics card said it was going to be fine. http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/whats-a-good-graphics-card-to-buy-around-100-150.195940/ My computer has had hiccups like this from time to time, but not like this where my computer got high xD!

Could be a sign of bad hardware (probably RAM or something), could be just a crash of sorts. If it doesn't happen again I wouldn't worry about it.

EDIT: Yes the PSU is more than enough for your setup.

EDIT again: As always, keep an eye on temps, and beware strange noises coming from the HDD. :)

I guess I should have looked into the full details of the PSU instead of just the wattage, my bad! :O haha. As Frick suggested, test the RAM.
How do I test the RAM exactly?

Actually I wouldn't bother with testing it, unless it happens several times.
