Jetway Mobo - No POST

I built my first computer in August. I've had a flawless experience with my first new build until recently. One day last week, I was playing Dragon Age: Origins. Out of the blue, my computer went crazy and lost video signal. My first reaction was obviously to restart my computer. My computer wouldn't even POST. I researched the possible causes of the problem, and most of the answers I found were a possible fault PSU. I thought this was very possible since I had installed a very cheap Rosewill 530W Continuous Power Green Series to power up my budget build. I ended up buying an OCZ 700W ModXStream and replacing it. The problem still occurred.

I've called Jetway's "technical support" (bunch of idiots tbh) and they told me to try 1 stick of ram, so I did. Still a no go. They then told me to try 1 stick of ram in different slots, so I did and still nothing changed.

I'm going to RMA the board, but before I do that are there any other possible suggestions that you guys may have? From my experience, Toms Hardware posters are 10x more informative than those idiot "tech supports" over at Jetway.

Intel Core i7-930
Jetway JBI-600
700W OCZ ModXStream
12 GB RAM (2GB x 6)
XFX Radeon 5850
1TB Hitachi HDD 7200RPM
Lite-On DVD-RW

Are you saying no beeps, lights or fans plugged into the motherboard when you turn it on? If that's the case then you should rma the board. Chances are the psu took out the mobo also and they might catch that. But definitely worth the effort. Hope it didn't short out the CPU as well. If some of those things are working/lighting up you might try a different video card first.

No beeps. Lights are working. Everything turns on. Just no video signal at all.

Also if it was the video card, wouldn't the motherboard still beep?

It should give you beep codes if you have a speaker connected to the mobo itself. They don't come as standard equipment if you built it yourself so make sure you have one connected. Have you tried going straight to BIOS on bootup? (yeah, I saw where you said no post, just checking if you tried to enter bios). Also, try removing all memory modules and see if you get any beeps from that. If you plug a fan into one of the headers on the board does it spin up? I had a board once that did everything yours is doing but never beeped or posted either. These were the things I tried before tossing it.
