Nvidia GTX 460 Card. Blank screen, no display.

Hello. I just purchased this card: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

I put it into this system: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01...

Which has this PSU in it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I installed the card and hooked up the two 6pin connectors to it and powered on the PC. The card's fan will spin however there is no video going to the monitor, just a blank screen which then says monitor going to sleep. If I disconnect the HDMI connector from the card and plug it back in the monitors light will switch from amber to blue but then say monitor going to sleep again. Put the old card back in and it starts up no problem. Before installing the new card I removed the old card and drivers through device manager. The old card did have a mini connector going into it, I believe it was a 2pin that ran into the motherboard, black and white cables. I think this was just a grounding cable though so I shouldn't need it to connect to the new graphics card to make it work right? Because the new graphics card doesn't have anywhere for it to connect to. Also did the beep test on it. I removed all the memory from the PC and tried to power it on with the old card and got the beep from the card saying there was no memory. Put the new card in and powered it on and it did not beep. I'm out of ideas so any help on this matter will be GREATLY appreciated. I've spent about 4 hours searching Google, forums, everything but none of the solutions people have recommended have worked so far. Thanks in advance!

I'd wager it's a bad card. The PSU you have clearly is enough to power your card, and the system was working just fine with that PSU installed and with the old video card in there.

RMA the video card.

Also, I wouldn't trust Tigerdirect if my life depended on it.
