However, I'd used a different GPU, one that I'm not sure is on the compatibility list for my MB. It seemed top of the line and "newer" and therefore I thought it would be OK (and it's PCIe) but now I'm reading about "BIOS compatibility," not sure if that's my problem.
My motherboard does not have a way for me to plug my monitor in directly to it, either.

On the "b7" error:
The RAM sticks are 1.60 volts each (not 1.50) so I'm wondering if that could be part of the "b7" error. I read on this site that once I get into the bios I can adjust and add more sticks.
I'm a little freaked out because I'm new at this and was hoping for it to boot!
