I have an Intel Dual Core E2180 @ 2.0 GHz, a biostar motherboard g31m7te v2.1, a coolermaster SNPS supporting 460w, 3GB ddr2 ram and a samsung synmaster 723nw monitor with a max display of 1440*900. I bought a Palit Nvidia GTX 460 1024MB ddr5. After installing the hardware, when I run my computer the cpu is active(all fans moving, all lights beeping) but my monitor is giving no display, just a blank screen. When I plug the vga cord to the internal graphics slot of the mobo, it is giving display. I am in very confusing state, the retailers are saying that I need to change the mobo and the processor cz they cannot handle the gpu. PLZ HELP...............
PLZ HELP. I am in deep trouble.......
Thanx in Advance......

That CPU is fine. You should still get video. If anything, your PSU might not be powerful enough. Wattage is fine, but check the amps on the 12v rail. It needs to be about 26 amps for a 460 1GB.

It says "support dual +12V1 and +12V2 output for higher power usage"

My Psu has +12V1 18A and +12V2 18A. So I guess it's ok there.....

Are you planning to upgrade your CPU in the future? And no you don't need to change anything in order to run the GTX 460 on a LGA 775 socket motherboard. Just makes sure that your power supply has 2 6-pin PCI-E power connectors

+1 mousemonkey go to bios and disable onboard and enable the PCIE. that would not happen to be a gtx460 1gb SE would it? If it is and you have changed everything in the bios correctly take the card back to where you got it or if they wont take it back call Palit and get them to RMA it. I have had bad luck with the SE versions of the gtx460.
