Built 2 workstations, identical. Foxconn AM2+ mobo and ATI 4380 vid for dual monitors. The problem is the system wont post with both monitors plugged in. Unplug any cable (the one with or without the dvi adapter doesn't matter which one) and it beeps and boots.

There is a post like that in the troubleshooting section I haven't really search for it now but take a look and try to find it. IMO it`s probably a PSU failure but this is only opinion.

Ask for more.

Can you swap the PSUs between boxes? My fear on part swaps is that something maybe took down the one PSU and will take the other down, but as they are new builds the case is probably PSU related as you say.

It's possible the GPU is faulty too since I'm assuming one PC works perfect and the other doesn't?

I had a similiar problem with my original GTX280 the system would boot but would BSOD at the windows startup, turned out to be a faulty card.

Id swap the gfx cards as mentioned above. Sounds like a dud.
