I upgraded my power supply from a 350W that came with the case to an Antec TruePower Trio 650W and my computer doesn't start. With my old power supply the red LED near the 20 pin connector and RAM is on continuously. With the new power supply it flashes. What does this LED mean? Bad Power Supply?

I agree with you about the power supply being faulty. Unfortunately FixYa is not affiliated with Antec nor sells or service any computer components. You need to contact the supplier who sold you the power supply or contact Antec.
If you computer over heated, this could have caused the board or power supply to short. I would first start by trying a new power supply unit (since this is cheapest of the options). If that does not work then try replacing the motherboard and/or processor. Since you not getting any power, my guess is motherboard or power supply unit.
phalitao, you need to check you're power supply it may be bad.
No PC or notebook will boot without memory. However in your case I would recheck all power connections from the power supply to the board. Remove & reseat all power connections.
Please use you're manual help guide you. Also on the back of you're power supply (on most PSU's), there is a Red slide switch. Please make sure it is set to 115v & not 220v. After all this checking & you do not see life from the board, suggest you replace the power supply with a min wattage of 400w. Or borrow a PSU of 350w or better.
Please post back with you're findings.

A8V-MXs are built for AMD processors. You will need a board made for Intel processors if you want to purchase the above processor. If you want to stick with Intel and Asus check out the P5 series of boards. If not, buy an AMD chip...I've had AMD in almost every one of my computers, laptops and desktops.
