Windows 7: New build won't turn on

7 now locked and loaded, all seems to be well - RAM, CPU, temps, etc.
@#$%! Asus motherboards. Or mother @#$%! Asus boards.

This is what I ended up using, if anyone cares.
CPU - AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Mobo - Gigabyte 890XA-UD3
Video - NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 because I got it for a steal, upgrade later.
PSU - OCZ 700W ModXStream
RAM - 4GB OCZ DDR3 PC3-10666 Gold

It ain't a Cadillac but it seems like one with the POS I've been using the past 4-5 years. Upgrades down the road will be a lot easier. I was really stuck with my older system, although I cannibalized two HDDs and a DVD for the new system.

Thanks again for all the suggestions. Big fan of the 7F.

Just out of curiosity how did you get everything to work in the end. In your previous post you were still having problems.
