YOU ARE WRONG.

You just don't know wtf you're doing.

And I didn't say that to be mean or anything. But you ARE lost in the dark and shortsited in taking any experienced advice.

Send it all back and buy a Dell.

Now that wasn't mean... but it's what I mean...

please don't insult people

from what I've heard, newegg is fast with processing etc. they don't want to have unhappy customers.

you should send the Asrock board back and get the A8V instead. the A8V is a better board anyway.

After reading numerous reviews about only certain cards working I found this on their site. When I find the other list I will post it as well

I'd recommend against a board with AGP and PCI-E. it's bound to have flaws in it, like you are experiencing.

Well if you really just want to check and see if it is the power supply, what I would do is find a store that will take it back for a full refund. Or worse case if it was a 50 buck Power supply you pay 5 or 7 bucks to return same as if u had to pay for shipping.

Bring home, plug it in and if it works then all is good, and I know where the problem was, if not return it to the store, and look for other solutions.

I dont trust things that say that they wont work just because they are not on some compatiability list. Unless you see soemplace where it would state, THIS IS NOT COMPATIABLE "period" then that is another story
