I recently purchased XFX HD-583X-ZAFC Radeon HD 5830 Video Card - 1GB, GDDR5. I have a Dell inspirion 530. I added a 600 watt OCZ psu. When i install the card the computer turns on, fans are running, but I get no video, and my keyboard doesn't light up. Any tips? Does this card require a bigger PSU (more than 600). The only other power being used is to my main board, CD ROM, and Hard Drive. Also if it matters I have windows 7.

psu should be good. are you sure you plugged in all the power cables required for mobo and gph card? sounds dumb but we have all made that mistake before. do you get any beeps from the motherboard? if so what are they?

re-assemble the whole cables, even people with many experience are sometimes miss 1 or 2 thing, it could be not attached properly...
