It could be several things. Try de-fragmenting and optimizing the files and volumes on the hard drive. Reinstall the system. Do a force quit to see what's running in the background and turn off anything that is. Change the view option and turn off size. What speed was the old drive and what speed is the new drive? How full are the drives?

We can only speculate the reasons as there could anything behind the slow performance of the computer. Since you installed a new drive the performance should increase rather than going down. Chances are very low that New HDD which you got had some manufacturing defects like bad sectors. Did you tried a reinstallation of the OS X, may be that have fixed the issues.
