If it turns off only when it gets to vista then it may be an OS problem. Try leaving it on for 5 minutes or more in the BIOS and see what happens. What PSU are you using?

Did you try Mich1 posted yet?
Looking at your specs my suspect is that PSU, I take it you don't have a spare or anything lying around that you can try?
Things you can do, remove 1 RAM stick; and turn the computer on, wait for however long it takes for it to restart. If it restarts, turn the comp off and take out the current RAM stick and try the other one; if it restarts again the problem lies elsewhere.
Without having spare parts to test it'll hard to determine the problem. You can try re-install the OS again and see if that works. If it doesn't I'd advise buying a new PSU now. A few suggestions are.
Enermax PSU's are probably the best PSU's in the market.
Corsair 520 HX I have this myself and it's great.
If you get a new PSU and problem still happens, it could be the mobo.
p.s: You could also try a bios update too.
