Thanks for getting back to me!
And no, no video was displayed at all, the screen was completely dark. I think I did two things wrong, one is that I don't have the right power supply (thanks for the link, that one is 500+, the one I have installed is Bestec 250W, not nearly enough I see) and the other was that I didn't follow your advice and go into the BIOS and enabled it, so I think I'll do that after I pick up a new power supply.
Noob question here, but is it necessary that I remove the old graphics card? Not going to lie, I have no idea where it is. http://s38.photobucket.com/albums/e119/Phiyade/?action=view¤t=2012-04-13_17-35-38_484.jpg
That's my computer. I have a Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset, was going to put the new graphics card in the think black line you see above the fan. Any thing I should know?
Sorry again for being new to all this - it was supposed to be easy.
