  5. have you tried using the motherboard's built in hdmi/dvi option? If not, then i would suggest you do so to avoid any damage to the motherboard.

    what try using the onboard without any graphics card in at all?
  7. yes, that motherboard has got built in graphics chip so you can plug in your monitor directlly without needing a dedicated VGA.
  8. You should be fine with the 3850. It won't harm anything to use it. (assuming the 3850 isn't broken.)
