well, first off, if you want to get a new MOBO, try newegg.com. Their prices are pretty reasonable. I don't know if they ship to the UK or not, but it's worth finding out.

it could also be a PSU or even a simple power switch problem (it also sounds kind of like a short in the system) are there any beep codes when this happens, or does it just go straight off?

sorry mate looks like we all ignored the problem and assumed u jus wanted a new motherboard.

right well 1 thing to try would be take all of the components out of the case and build them on a sheet of anti static 'paper' or an anti static bag or something i had the same problem with mine it was shorting out against the case

Yep, sounds like its shorting to me, did you fit it onto standoffs when you installed it?
