Hello Mightyshadow!

Do you hear your computer's POST beep? Additionally, do you have another video card or Monitor you can try?

There's a link to a troubleshooting checklist in my signature. I would perform EVERY step in the checklist and let us know the results. The checklist was created to troubleshoot this exact type of problem.

to borisof007 : There is no POST beep in my computer since the start. It never did. I have another monitor BENQ G2412HD. The same happens there. I dont have another video card so couldn't try it.

Additionally, i just found out that there is no ingoing power to my graphix card as when i boot the system the graphic card's fan does not move. SO im guessing that my graphic card is not getting the power required for it. Please correct me if im wrong. if thats the problem could someone suggest a couple of good PSU. It's the second time im facing a problem like this.

What PSU do you currently have? What's the budget for the new PSU? I'm guessing you would like to leave the option of SLI open since you have an Nvidia GPU and an SLI motherboard. I would recommend this PSU:

Antec TruePower New TP-750 Blue 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply $104.99 w/promo code tp1505, ends 5/31 - $20 MIR

You certainly don't want to go cheap on the PSU. It's the most important component for a stable system.

I have a VIP 500W Gold ATX Power Supply as PSU. Its 2 years old almost.

The budget for the new PSU is somewhere between 5000-6000 Indian Rs. Yes i have to implement SLI as well in the near future.
