Question about ASUS P5NSLI (0610839134670) Motherboard
The trouble is not your power supply. It's Asus EZ selector card. One really needs to pay close attention to the manual when using two PCI-E video cards.
Pg. 1-34 in the manual. The boaed came with a Asus EZ selector card. When using only 1 PCI-E card the selector card is inserted into it's slot (Single video Card) side down.
When two PCI-E video cards are being used the Asus EZ selector card get's turned over. The (Dual video Card) side goes down it's slot. As noted on pg. 1-34. To enter the bios press the Delete key every 2 seconds just as the PC starts up. When the bios loads you'll be at the Main page. To setup the video cards you'll need to be in the Advanced Menue pg. 2-21. Go to pg. 2-30 & set primary display to PCI-E. It may already be there set to PCI-E from using the FX5200.
Lastly & real important. The PCI-E cards run hot. You need to add at least one 3" side case fan to bring in fresh cool air. This could be the reason the FX card died so fast. I suggest you use two side case fans to blow air directly over the two PCI-E cards.
I'll bet you get more than a year out of them. The link below may help you decide what type of fan's to get. Just make sure you buy a grill for the fans so you don't hurt a finger.
Adding case fans mean someone will have to cut the side panel of the case but it is worth it.
If you have more questions feel free to post here.
Good Luck & kind Regards
Thanks for using FixYa.

The dead card may have taken the motherboard and cpu with it.
he will have to strip the system to only 3 component and test them
1 stick memory /cpu and fand / video card that is all that should be connected. then pull memory of video card does it beep. if not the cpu or board is not posting at all.
