Hello all,

Im on a bit of a budget so cant order all components for my new PC at once. Just received an ASUS P5Q-e motherboard, CPU, memory and ATX case from newegg. Powersupply is coming this week. Is there any way that i can test the components without hooking up to a screen as I dont have a video card yet. i.e. beeps from POST or something.

Will be ordering the HD, DVD-R and GPU soon, and hopefully within the return period for the rest of the components. Would just like to return any dodgy components at the earliest possible time.

Thanks a lot

Can't you find an old PCI video card? That would be good enough for basic testing. Did you make a bootable USB key to be able to perform some tests?
