    There was a great article on ZD Net (one of their newsletters) about building a computer that hid behind a 22" LCD monitor. Really cool! I thought about going with a Sunbeam blue tinted plastic (cube) case but after reading they are dust magnets decided against it.

    Hi everyone, the issue has been solved. I took in my Vantec power supply and bought a Thermaltake ToughPower Q-Fan 550W modular PSU. It's powering on like a dream now! I've got the store testing the Vantec to see if I can RMA it and get my money back. It claimed it was SLI certifed, and they were quite surprised that it wasn't enough for the 9800GTX+.

    Thanks for everyone's input!

    That's good to hear!

    The PSU was probably just defective.

    Glad to hear everything is working, a lot of people still under estimate how important a quality PSU is, and not only that but what effect a faulty unit can have on a system. This thread is a PERFECT example of what can happen. Again glad it's working for you.
