Well I'm relieved but worried at the same time. As i just tried to put that card in my system last night and the PC wont post. If I put the old card back in it works fine
I thought it was the PSU. As far as I know I did everything I was suppose to. Uninstalled the old drivers and connected PCI-e power cables to the card.
Could it be a bad video card? the Mobo is also a Gigabyte.
