Hi guys, Im from Argentina so, sorry for my bad english :) 

First here's my brand new computer configuration:

Mobo: Gigabyte - Ga-x79-UP4
Processor: Intel 7i LGA 2011 3820
Video Card: Gigabyte - Radeon HD 7970 oc. 3gb
Ram: 4x4gb Corsair Dominator 1600 mhz CL7
PSU: NZXT - Hale82 850w.
SSD: 2x OCZ vertex 3 120gb.
Chassis: NZXT - Phantom 820.

First when i install all the parts and turn power on, the only thing i saw was a black screen, and i was OMG something is dead. But researching in forums i realize that the problem can be solved updating the mobo bios, then i put my old graphic card and proceed to update the mobo bios.
After doing that i put the brand new video card and everithing was going fine.
then i was surfing in the bios setup to configure RAID 0, i dont know what happend but, Im having that black screen againg.
One more time I proceed to connect my old Video card to reset mobos bios and now im stuck.
I think the video card is dead, coz now even the fans are not working.
When i turn the pc on, Video card fans, just moves a little bit and nothing, black screen and mobos beeping.
And now I have this computer resting here, no windows, no raid 0, nothing, I just wanna burn up this ***** computer! =(

Please help me. Thanks!

Do you have BOTH the 6 pin and the 8 pin power cable plugged in? What is the make/model of your PSU?
