I am thinking about getting a new graphics card. I am going for a total of under 200$. I already have a the ATI Radeon 4770 in mind and i will probably need a new psu since mine is only 250w. For a new psu i was thinking the Antec Earthwatts Green EA380D which is 380w. Im hoping to play new games like borderlands 2, and diablo 3 at medium to high settings.
So the new stuff arrived a few days ago and i got around to attempting to installing them. The power supply went in nicely after I got the hang of it. And the graphics card was really easy to put in. But when i booted it up, the power light came on but it could not connect to the monitor and it was getting no signal. So I opened back up, removed the graphics card closed it, then booted it back up and it worked like a charm. But there is an obvious problem here, the graphics card is not in the computer. I don't know what to do. Please help.
And thanks so much for your past help.
wait a second, i just looked at those pictures again, was i supposed to plug in that double pin one that hangs off the side, because i only saw a 6 pin slot on the gpu, but the psu did have two of those pic-e ones both with the two hanging off, did i do it right?
Sorry i haven't replied in a while i got sucked into borderlands 2 instantly. i solved the problem, it was that i wasn't using the adapter for the monitor-> card cable. It works like a charm now, drivers installed and everything. Thanks so much for your help though.
