Did you plug in the power cables from the power supply to your new video card?

Did you make this connection? "Dual 8pin Power Connector is required for the best performance"?

Try different cables and see if there is any change.

That PSU is more than enough. You may just for grins put the GTX 580 back in and see if it works now. Who knows maybe a cable was loose or something wasn't seated correctly. At least now you know the PC is working so try the card again. Also make sure the 6 pin and 8 pin PCIE power cables are plugged in to the GTX 580(been there before myself when I forgot to connect one).

Can you RMA the GTX 580?

i don't think so,.. i misplaced the necessary documents

You don't need any documents. Prit out the slip from the place you bought it. I think that with asus you don't have to register a card and you still have 3 years warranty.

and I'm right
