Thermaltake TR2 power supplies are garbage.  It's plausible that that alone might be your problem, though it's also plausible that it has damaged something else in your system and that's the source of the problem.

I'd try getting a good quality power supply first, and seeing if that fixes everything else.  If not, then you would have had to buy a new power supply anyway, so you just keep using the power supply you just bought.  Here you go:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182264

More wattage than you need, but it's high quality and it's $90 with the promo code, which is appropriate for a $1000-$1200 budget.

never thought the power supply would cause any issues considering i had the default psu that was 250wt in this pc with my radeon card which the guy at best buy was shocked my pc didn't blow up from a weak psu and strong video card and the psu was bought in 2011-2012 can't remember exaclty.

 

i've had this pc for around 3 years and i've replaced the parts i listed and i still have the freezing issue how would getting another power supply solve the problem ? 

the parts i read that cause freezing i replaced most of them except for motherboard and maybe hard drive and i've watched a video of a brand new xps out of box with this freezing issue and my only thought is it might be just plain overheating the fan speed program has ranged from 65-74c in the video it went to 75-76c and froze in the exact same way mine has.

Case is going to be up to you. Those you linked are perfectly fine and will work great. Thats your call on what to buy / spend on a case as most will do.

OS is also up to you. Do you want windows 7 or 8? just get the 64 bit version and you golden either way. I am sticking with 7 myself, but alot of people like 8. Decide what you want, really cant make a bad choice there IMO.

I think i'd go with win7 home 64 since i've been using vista home 64 and works good.

You may have replaced a shitty PSU that couldnt handle the system with another shitty PSU that cant handle the system.

But then again, maybe not. Hard to tell. But the advice of buying a good solid PSU and putting it in to see if it fixes your problem is solid. As you win either way. Your system gets fixed, or you have a great PSU for your new build.

If you are not interested in attempting to fix your old system then thats still a great deal on the PSU quiz linked.

The freezing may have been caused by overtaxing a power supply enough that it damaged something else.  The "something else" would then be the direct cause of the freezing, but getting a known good power supply will at least prevent further damage.  The power supply also has the advantage that it will be compatible with any modern computer, so you don't have to worry about buying a part that you'll just have to replace again if you decide to replace the computer.

while checking out the psu on new egg i was trying to get the promo code to work which doesn't seem to wanna work and i signed up for the discounts and found this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182073
