When you use the first motherboard doyou also have the integrated graphics connected?
The specification says: Either integrated graphics or the PCI Express x16 slot are usable at one time; they are not usable concurrently

Your psu has adequate power. Since it is working, and running ok on the second pc, you should be OK.
But, be advised that the psu is a tier 5 (not recommended, replace asap) unit on this list:

Install the card in your pc, and attach the power leads. Attach your monitor to the card.
In the bios, you should have an option as to which graphics adapter you want to use on startup. Select the discrete card.
Some bios'es will automatically prefer a discrete card when present, some will not.

You probably just needed to disable the integrated graphics from being the primary video device in the bios.
