jeez... you're right... I don't know what I was thinking. I forgot about the POST needing memory. Maybe I was thinking about a HDD, but thanks for catching that before ...

    that power supply is plenty of power for your system.

    are you sure you connected it to all the places on the motherboard? most newer motherboards have the main atx 20/24 pin connector and an additional p4 4/8 pin connector as well

    i'm looking at that motherboard online, it takes a 24 pin, not a 20 pin, you shouldn't be converting the 24 pin from your power supply to a 20 pin and plugging it in...
