Does anyone know what's wrong please?

Its annoying as I have paid for these but then they don't work.
I had a pirate copy of Far Cry 3 before which did work.

Unboxing Als die Tiere den Wald verließen - Staffel Serise 1 2 and 3 DVDs The Animals of Farthing Wood German Import




Unboxing Als die Tiere den Wald verließen - Staffel Serise 1 2 and 3 DVDs The Animals of Farthing Wood German Import

This used to be an oldskool show I used to watch back in the day on CBBC back in the 90s.
Its really good to see them again after all this time and is still a great show to.
The Animals of Farthing Wood is not out on DVD in the UK yet.
But you can get these from Amazon.de: They are German but do have English audio.  
You can view these on youtube but its nice to have these to keep on DVD at last.
They don't seem to be any other videos showing the DVD set so I have uploaded this.

These are the official DVDs and the best ones to buy right now.

Think my new Gigabyte GA-Z77-HD3 board is broken?


Think my new Gigabyte GA-Z77-HD3 board is broken?

And showed this

It then reset but now my PC won't even start up any more.
It will just come on after about 10 mins power up for about 2 seconds and goes off.
Nothing comes up on my monitor.
Is my mother board broken?
And will I have to send it back to Amazon?
will they change it or give me a refund?
Maybe I should have got the ASrock one after all.

Unboxing 650 Watt XFX 80 PLUS Bronze Modular Power Supply




Unboxing 650 Watt XFX 80 PLUS Bronze Modular Power Supply

http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Power+Supplies/Modular+650W+or+less/650W+XFX+Pro+XXX+Edition+80PLUS+Bronze+Modular+Power+Supply+%5BP1-650X-XXB9%5D+?productId=53994

This seems like a really well made PSU.
It has lots of connections and runs really quite to.

Enables you to maximize available power and make set-up easy. Stack numerous power-hungry components,
such as your GPU, CPU and other components, without fear of crashing. In addition this PSU has also been award the 80Plus Bronze certification for its high power efficiency and is also designed for NVIDIA SLI and AMD Crossfire multi-GPU systems making it a perfect solution for hardcore gamers.
One Rail, One Setup. Conventional PSUs use multi-rail technology which basically combines cheaper and lower wattage PSUs into one single PSU to generate a higher total wattage.
However, smaller rails have lower maximum wattages so left over wattage on individual rails become too small to handle major components and gets wasted.
Not enough actual wattage - Even though there is technically 50 Watts of power remaining, none of the rails have more than 25W to handle adding a 50W component. PSUs with EasyRail™ Technology give you one continuous rail of power covering the total maximum wattage.
What this means is that no matter how many devices you have, high or low power, they can easily stack until it reaches the full maximum wattage. With EasyRail™ technology you can maximize the potential of your PSU with ease.
Exactly enough actual wattage - Of the 50 Watts of power that you expect to be remaining, all 50W is actually available to easily handle adding a 50W component.

- High +12V Output
-Ultra Ventilation [Grid Structure]
