Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0

I wanted to upgrade my computer so i decided to buy :

Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
AMD 8-core 8350
and a 850 watt psu.
G. Skill F3-10666cl7d-8gbxh

I bought these off of newegg.

So i set up my new configuration. I already have an AMD radeon 7970. Amazing card. i hooked up my old hard drive, cd drive, and inserted my old card in. Upon doing so and booting up my computer, i received numerous beeps. Consulting the user manual to the mobo, i found out that it was telling me no VGA detected and also major hardware failure. I went ahead and sent in an RMA for the mobo.

However something weird happen. I set up my old setup and then my video card would not read. luckily i have onboard graphics for my old foxconn motherboard. The fan still spins on the card though.

my questions:
1. Is my card dead?
2. Reading the user manual i could not find the specific RAM sticks that i have under the compatibility chart. will i have to buy new sticks of RAM?
3. Could my board really be good and the card cause those errors?
4. How can i test if my CPU is good? should i send it back as well?

  1. So your old card won't work in any computer?

    Not anymore. The fan still spins which strikes me as odd
  3. Well if it doesn't work in any computer then it is obviously the card, I mean I've had things break at random and odd times too

    You wrote, "hooked up my old hard drive and booted up received numerous errors". You need to do a clean install of your operating system otherwise you will have massive driver confusion. You can delete old partitions on your hard drive and make new partitions with a clean installation of Windows.

    The FX-8350 CPU supports the use of DDR3-1866MHz memory with one DIMM per channel. So you can use two sticks of DDR3-1866MHz memory on a dual channel memory motherboard with no overclocking. With four sticks of memory, you can use DDR3-1600MHz memory.
