A Second card arrived yesterday, I fitted it, both LED'S above the connectors lit, and it wouldn't even boot. Took it out fitted my old card, all normal.

Seems unlikely that you'd have two bad cards.

Is your "old" card the Radeon 5870?

One semi-random suggestion: clear the CMOS. (Also known as clearing the RTC.) I've had to do that when switching between AMD and nVidia cards. I don't know why.

Hi Yes my "old" card is the Radeon 5870.
Yes, it is unlikely that two cards are bad, although it's possible, and that's why I'm reluctant to return it to Amazon, as I will end up with triple sli GPU's and no where to put them..lol
I have called ASUS support in Greece, and I have sent them an email, I'm waiting to see what they suggest.
I am also waiting to hear from Amazon to see if the first card is dodgy or not.
I will try your suggestion, as well.
Cheers!!

I purchased a new PSU and tested the card and it's "dead".
