I just got my evga 580gtx super clocked gpu from new egg today, I shut the comp down, unplugged the power supply, swapped out the gpu's, plugged the power supply back in, flipped the switch on the power supply and my asus p6t deluxe didnt boot up, looking inside the red led power button and the green led reset button on the mobo is blinking on/off.
I shut the ps off unplugged/plugged back in the 24pin connector and the 8 pin connector from the mobo, tired it again, and I get the same blinking lights.

I had a old apevia ps so I swapped it out as well as put my old 285 gtx gpu back on the mobo, turned the power on and it boot up no problems.

Could this new 580gtx be doa and killed my power supply?
My power supply is just under 2 years old it is a PCP&C Quad silencer 750 watt single rail rated at 62 amps

Im afraid to plug the new 580gtx into the mobo in fear If the new gpu is at fault it will blow out my one and only backup psu

Thoughts?
I am at a loss here, I have never heard of this happening before

Does the "bad" PSU work without the 580 in there?
Does it work with another mobo?

I got evga tech support on the phone, he said its a one in a million shot the gpu blew out the psu, he told me to hook up the new gpu with the backup ps, he said if the gpu smokes the backup supply he would buy me 2 new ps, so I did and gpu worked, so I yold the tech its a 1 in a million shot I would shut down the pc to swap out the gpu and have the ps die during shut down.
I just ordered a new Corsair TX 750 watt V2 Enthusiast series ps
