I'll have to recant my statement about a bad PSU as that wasn't it!
As it turned out it was one of my 9800GT's that was intermittent and I refused to believe it was the PSU that was at fault so one last attempt was made, I reattached my new PSU and pulled my GTX260 from my other machine and lo and behold, everything worked!!!
So just to make sure I put the 9800 in question into my i7 build and it wouldn't post.
So, this was a good excuse(at least in my mind) to replace it with an eVGA GTX460!
They're at a decent price these days at $180 and can outperform a 470 when properly OC'd but I'm not going there again.
I also got a 2TB WD Green at $100 for storage/backup.
I remember someone here hating on them because of the spin down, but I have an SSD as boot and several regular SATAs to make up for that and I'll finally have plenty of room to save images of the SSD and the other OS's that I plan to install.
Anyways, R.I.P. to a very hard working GPU, you fought well my friend.
P.S. It's darn handy to have two machines!
