Check your battery terminals, make sure they are clean, none of that black corrosion, then test the cables themselves, it sounds like you have a voltage drop in the main circuits.

but do the lights dim to nothing or stay bright when you try to start?

How did it run before changing all those parts? Dbl check and clean all eclectical connections? What does your tune up consist of?
