ok ok ok. However let me tell you the latest news. I changed the IDE cables going to my HD and my DVDRW to the DFI ones instead of my old ones and this is what it does:

-monitor turns of, shows the DFI Lan Party logo
-CPU fan turns off, Everything else that is hooked up stays on
-Goes to the post screan and through that
-gets to the press F1 to continue or delete to enter setup
-i press f1 and it goes back and starts from step 1

are you sure this is the psu? it sure doesnt sound like it to me. If you guys are really convinced it is the PSU, can someone recomend one for around $100

There's no way anybody can be 100% sure without personally testing it, but it sounds like power as it's randomly restarting.
Have a look around and see if you can get yourself a Sunbeam Nuuo. Fantastic PSU, within your budget, but can be difficult to get hold of by all accounts.
EDIT: If you can't find the Sunbeam, then the Seasonic 500W would be a great PSU for you.

I would upgrade the PSU even if it isn't the problem (which it looks like it is). A good PSU for under $100 would be the Sunbeam NUUO, but you'll be hard-pressed to find it anywhere in stock.

LOL I suggested buying a new PSU form the start and you called that ridiculous ...

I would get the OCZ 520 . And sell the PSU you have ..It can never hurt to put a quality PSU in your system . .

Also can you enter the bios at all ?

I havent tried entering bios because at the post screen where it says press F1 or delete the CPU fan is not running, so i only keep the system of for a few seconds because of heat damaging the CPU. I was looking on the DFI-Street site and they said the OCZ 520 was the best PSU for this board hands down. I think I will sell this PSU and my old socket 775 motherboard, then I will have enough for it. It seems like the X connect should at least power it though...

To Ares: Definately wait or buy it now and save more for a PSU because i can garentee you will need it. I'll keep everyone updated. Check the for sale section please
