I just built an SLI tower worked great for 3 days than it wouldn’t

Changed MB,PSupply worked well for 3 days than wouldn’t start.
Power Supply=550W/MB=Albatron-K8SLI/RAM=1GB/GCards=ExpertVison 6600GT
PCIE 128Mb x2
Old machine with 350w PS starts fine
Would this be too much power?
Has a Power Supply got a cold start circuit?

What brand of PSU is it?

If it's an economy one, it could be depite being maked as 550w, it just
doesn't have the grunt to do the job (it's not just the wattage, the
amperage is just as important with PSU's). It certainly won't have too much
power as the system will only draw what it needs.

Perhaps one component has failed and is dragging the PC down with it - try
the graphics cards one at a time in single setup. Test the RAM modules one
at a time etc...
