Well, maybe there's an incompatibility with the motherboard and another component. Popular themes like that include memory and graphics card. Did you update the bios?
You don't need an AGP card to test it out, a PCI card will do just fine for that.

Maybe you tested already with prime but did you test your memory with memtest86 and did you try to see wheather the blackouts still occur with only one memory stick plugged in?

You tried two PS units, which ones?

Give your graphics card a dedicated power line if possible. So no HD or ATAPI device attached to the extra graphics card power connector.
