Default Power Up Issue

Wondering what is going on. I just put in another graphics card, 120mm fan and a 5 channel 30W per channel manual fan controller. For whatever reason the rig does not boot up on the first try, it starts and then stops and the next time I hit the power button it comes up like nothing is wrong. It could be a power supply issue, or maybe the way I have it hooked up. One of the channels on the controller was not working, so I took the one fan and made it still run off of the power supply and be controlled by the motherboard. I have a 750W PSU and was wondering if I need a bigger one or if this should be sufficient or if it is nothing to worry about.

The two times I tried starting it up and it did not boot was with only the power chord plugged in, but this shouldnt cause an issue anyways.
