I have an older computer with an Asus A8N-SLI premium mobo, 4200+ X2 athlon and Thermaltake Soprano case with 430W power supply
I recently purchased a Gigabyte HD5770 under the impression it would be compatible with the system.
When I hooked it all up and fired up the rig, it would not boot. No post, no beep – nothing. I unplugged everything but the card and the CPU – still nothing – no indication of boot. The fan on the card powers up, but nothing happens.
Is this card compatible with my system? Am I doing something wrong?
Please assist if possible – thanks very much

wats the manufacturer for the PSU? i know that the 5770 has a power req of 450+ so it seems u r under powering ur system... 5770 you should get a 600W PSu just for future proofing.
The pc not booting is due to the PSU.
The psu was manufactured by Thermaltake - came with the case
