Try this:
Clear CMOS again.
Place video card in slot 2 or 3.
Boot up.
Shutdown.
Place video card in slot 1.
Boot up.

This has resolved your particular issue 3-4 times before. Otherwise, your primary slot is defective.


BTW, It is 99.99% not a PSU issue.
Once again...

May i ask why did you get two 9600gt they are the mid range of the 9 series

entry level
300 - 500
Mid level
600
High end
800 - GX2

The low end card will be on the market end of the year Q4.

I can't see how the SLI will help you need to get one card working first.

SLI won't work it out unfortunately... I would say RMA the board and try again.

Did you follow my procedure? If not, do it first. I have worked with a over a thousand of those motherboards.
