Default Video Card stops power

So I just constructed a computer and finally got it to power on and boot.
The only problem I've encountered is that once I put in my Geforce 9800 GX2 my computer gets no power. Here's what I'm using:

MOBO - BIOSTAR TFORCE TA790GX A2+ AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

Vcard - EVGA 01G-P3-N891-AR GeForce 9800 GX2 1GB (512MB per GPU) 512-bit (256-bit per GPU) GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

PSU - Antec NeoPower 650 Blue 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Use a mulitmeter to check how much power the video card is using. You're sure that the right power cables are hooked up to it?

i would say your power supply is to small but its not, so you need to check if you hooked up the cables to the power supply and mother board right
