Hi , I just built my computer and have everything running , but the only problem is when I unplug the power of the graphics card , I have a display , everything runs perfectly. The moment I shut off the computer and plug in the 2 6 pins for the gtx 260 and try to power my computer , nothing. I have no display whatsoever :( 
but the graphics cards fan is running. I have a 550 watt power supply , that seems fine please help

Well considering it can power a 4870 which uses more power then a 260...you should be fine

Albeit if you haven't bought the psu yet you should do as i did and spend the extra $ on the corsair 550w

I spent around 20$ more after rebate and i had seriously been eyeing that rosewill due to it being such a low price...meh i went with corsair for the peace of mind

Unfortunately it was DOA and iv sent it back...anyways yeah you should be fine with the rosewill...nice build btw

How much will you have in your build after tax/shipping?
