Nvidia 8800 gtx Not Working

I'm really new to building my own computer and this is the first graphics card i have installed.
I've tried to install the GeForce 8800 GTX graphics card into my computer. However I am getting no display.
Am i meant to plug my single monitor into the back of graphics card and not into the mobo?
Also do i need to plug both 6pins into the Graphics Card, or just one?

Graphics card:
Nvidia GeForce 8800GTX


Intel(R) Celeron E3300 2.50GHz

Power Supply:
ATX 12V 450UB

Thank you for the help and sorry for the easy questions.

  1. You'll have to plug in both 6 pin PCI-e connectors if the card has them, and you'll need to hook your monitor up to the graphics card instead of the motherboard.
  2. Thank you so much
    are the other components compatible with the graphics card?
  3. Not sure the power supply is compatible (it might not have enough 6-pin connectors). Everything else looks fine.
