Hello all, long time lurker.

I have a problem with my first build. I plug in my CPU and everything seems to power up as normal but when I put the graphics card in the mix I get a half spin from the fans then the system stops.

PSU; ANTEC Green 650W
GPU; MSI Gforce GTX 560

If any more information is needed let me know. Im pretty new to this and would really like to complete a semi-successful build myself. Thanks!

Okay, Ive realized there must be something wrong with the PSU. Im only hooking up the mobo, CPU and GPU to the Power supply and it gets power only with the CPU and mobo plugged in.

My specs are

intel i5 CPU LGA 1155 Sandybridge
MSI Gforce GTX560
Biostar Tseries ATX
Elixir 4GB RAM x2

Other than that Im not entirely sure. Im not home atm but am considering taking it to a shop. Although, since I am living in Japan that may be quite a chore. Any ideas?
