thank you all very much! my bad it was 430 am and i had a rough night banging my head on a wall with the board haha.
It is indeed 1000 W and also i was under the assumption the PSU was fine only because all the lights turn on as well as lights on the memory card adaptor i have plugged into the board. Unfortunately i dont have an extra PSU.
I looked at a lot of reviews and everyone tends to think Asus has done a crappy job with quality control on this model and so i was thinking of replacing it.
I called ASUS and they were under the impression that the board was faulty because re setting the CMOS did nothing.
