Hello guys,
I need advice from Asus, Gigabite users.

Currently I'm using Asus M3N72-D mobo, I recently pruchased ATI 5850 which seems doesnt like that mobo (or other way around), So I need new mobo wither asus or gigabyte. What happens is GPU fan at max > black screen no primary display output. Card work fine on another PC, Pc works fine without card :p  go figure. (
