Ah yes, more problems! Again, this is my first build and I have problems with my GPU which is an XFX R7 260X, my motherboard is an Asus M5A78L-M(USB3) and my OS is Windows 7 Home Premium. The problem seems to be that I do not get any video output from my video card and I also get one beep. I am sure that its not a problem with my motherboard because the integrated graphics just fine. I do not believe that my video card is not broken because the fan is on and working. Please tell me if I overlooked anything or if my GPU is faulty. Thanks for any help.

If the onboard video works and boots up, then I would suspect a faulty GPU. Make sure the PCI-E power connectors are secure, make sure the GPU is tightly secured into the PCI-E slot, make sure it's tightly screwed onto the PCI bracket, make sure your video cable is tightly secured onto the video output, make sure you try all the video ports on the GPU.

Yup, pretty sure its faulty tried all DVI ports and (one) HDMI port. This is the second faulty video card newegg sent to me, I'm going to get a replacement. Thanks for the advice!

Update: Turns out it wasn’t that video card that was faulty, it was the mobo. Kind of angry that I had to go through quite a few GPU’s but I was getting tired of playing on my laptop so pretty happy. The GPU’s fan runs pretty loud but it’s tolerable.
