I'm not too clear on how to interpret what the manual states I need in terms of power supply power specifications.
My system "works," but after buying a new video card (ATI Radeon HD 4850) and then a new power supply (OCZ GameXStream 700GXSSLI - 700W), I had an issue where I pressed the power button and it turned on for half a second, then powered off. I've also been getting some graphical game glitches (World of Warcraft).
From my motherboard's manual (page 2-32):
"To support an AMD Dual-Core CPU, make sure that the PSU can provide at least 16 A and 19 A peak on the +12V_2 lead."
As stated by badge, it should be fine, buit you may have a faulty unit. What was your previous PSU? Re-connect it and see if system powers up OK, if so , RMA the OCZ. You have connected all required power leads to the video card?
Thanks for the suggestions. I am using the system now. I got it to work again after an hour. I don't know what fixed it, but what I did was two-fold: unplugged the DVD drive (less power being used?), and I switched my video card to the PCIE slot #2. The first slot was hovering over some other crap. Maybe it was too cluttered and preventing airflow. Now it's in its own area of the motherboard.
I have a psu that would turn on and off after a second and it just went friggin crazy on me and (possibly) fried 800$ worth of parts (see my post above this one). So i would return/ rma the psu so you don't have to go through what im going through
