Unhappy PSU or?..

Ok so, straight to the point, I had an ASUS A8N SLI Premium, amd 64 3800, 1gb ddr, en6600gt and a tagen 480watt PSU.

It was running fine for almost a year then I switched it off and went out, I came home to find it hadn't shut down properly and had kinda just hung with all the fans spinning and lights on, so I try to restart and nothing, it won't boot, I wanted it fixed fast so I took it to my local computer shop and they said motherboard straight away so I replaced the board with an A8N sli deluxe within two weeks the same thing happened again and the board was dead, SOO then they replace that with an A8N32 premium and BAM that died t3o within TWO DAYS, i'm guessing it's the PSU killing the boards now, but i'm not sure exactly.

Any ideas? i'd like to be certain before splashing out more cash on

Oh yeah, each time the motherboards died they took my keyboards to **** with them. R.I.P wolfclaw type 2 ;x

Try replacing the PSU before doing anything else.
