alright so this will be my second build. a few months ago my first build died on him after about 3 years or so, but it's ok it was due for an upgrade. Right now i have a 500W power supply, bluray/dvd drive and hard drive in it, and i'm reusing the same Chassis that my first build was from. I bought a new
motherboard Asus M5A97 R2.0
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 16 GB
AMD FX 6300 6-core

Everything is installed correctly to the best of my knowledge, but still having the same problem i had with my previous build when it died on me, one day it just shut off and wouldn't start back up. motherboard standby LED light lights up, but nothing on my chassis lights up, nor when i try to boot it up nothing happens

ANY tips at all before i have to take it to best buy or something and just watch the money drain from my account...

figured it out, went and got the power supply tested and something inside the supply was shorting out.
