no video yet...
Just built a system today with an ATI X1959 Pro. Systems comes on but no video. There's power to the card, but nothing on the monitor. Tomorrow I can try a different card, but my question now is whether both the DVI connectors on the card are the same... should it matter which I connect to? And since I can't currently find my DVI cable, should using the supplied DVI-VGA adapter work on either of the card's DVI? (this is running through a KVM that I know works because I turned off a working machine to put this new on on the same cable.)

I have another card I can try in the PCI express slot tomorrow. I just wasn't sure if it mattered which DVI connector on the back of the ATI card I should use, or if the DVI-VGA adapter should work...

Most 965 mobos are picky about the RAM, especially OCZ.
If I was you, I try a cheap DDR2 RAM stick to boot.
I had same problem with OCZ, although it was like 5 months ago, it wouldn't POST. It happens with other memory brands also, mainly the ones which use more than 1.8V.

I'm also interested now: I have a 975XBX, E6600, X1900XTX and my PC suddenly does not want to boot anymore. I did a complete rebuild last thursday (cleaning the PC), and then reassembled everything. PC was fine until yesterday morning. Ii did not want to show anything, the screen just stays off.
So, I fiddled and then it started. Shut down, restart and the same again - no post. I've replugged all power to mobo, gcard, memory (512x2 + 1 gig in dual channel - Corsair Value) in/out and the problem stays. Now and again, I get a post and windows starts. I play a game or something - no problem. But when I bump the case or fiddle with the power cables, it freezes and I struggle to boot up again (and everything is secure).
I'm dumb struck with this..
