Hey Guys,

I really needs your help, pretty bad. I started building a new PC, i have experience with PC's,

My Specs are
Motherboard - ASRock P43Twins1600 LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel
CPU - Core 2 Quad 9550 2.83 ghz
Video Card - PNY VCG981024GXEB-FLB GeForce 9800 GT Hybrid Power 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported
RAM - A-DATA Vitesta 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
Power Supply - RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-730SS 730W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Modular LED

I purchased all from newegg. I am having a problem where everything is hooked up, everything is turning on, The LED fans and so on. It goes on but then it turns off and it turns on by itself and turns off. It seems as if it is rebooting constantly for about 30 seconds. I cant see anything going on because no onboard graphics.I re-seated everything to make sure. Everything is fine with hook ups but the frigen thing wont stay on. I can not even tell if it is a over heating issue. I installed the stock heatsink and fan on the cpu, i am waiting for a new one in the mail ,also i never installed bios on a motherboard without a onboard graphics, how am i supposed to do it. Please give me a hand. I will send pictures over if you want to see.
