Reset the bios and unplug the SB card!

By the way, your on-board audio is better than the SB Audigy, why have you bought an Audigy with an A7N8X Deluxe???

1 - Your board is grounded. Check all your stand-offs and
make sure everything matches up.

2 - You didn't wire the switch buss up right and the power
switch isn't working.

3 - You didn't plug the 4prong 12v CPU plug in.

4 - A hard drive, floppy, or cd-rom cable is plugged in
wrong or shorted.

5 - You really are cursed by a witch or a warlock in which
case stay the hell away from me!

As a card-carrying (well, okay, not <i>literally</i> card-carrying) witch, warlock, <i>and</i> gypsy, I can honestly say that it's probably not a literal curse. If it were, there would have been at least one eletrocution from a short by now and probably a nice little electrical fire with nasty smelling smoke and all that. ;)  So I'd rule out number 5.

Personally I agree with 1-4 though, leaning heavily towards 3, and then 1 quickly after that.

Actually, at this point it really could be almost anything, including just hooking up the front panel power button to the wrong lead on the mobo.

And what power supplies have you tried specifically?
