I have a XFS GeForce 9800GT 512mb and i am looking to see if it is compatable with my Gatewat DX4870 motherboard. I put it in at the start and when i plugged in the monitor it could not get a signal from the computer. As soon as I took it out it worked fine. It has a built in intel Graphics. Do i have to get a different video card or am i doing something wrong?
14gb ram 3x4 1x2 Bought the computer a week ago. has PCL express 16.0

you should have built your own. now you got in your hands a bad (or very underpowered power supply)

did you plug in any power cables to the card (if it requires any)

and drivers can be found here

if the video card needs more power plugs, of course you need to plug in the cables.

as for the monitor yes
