Got the new mobo/gfx card, hooked it all up, and tried to turn it on. Everything seemed to come on ok, but the monitor would show "Off mode in 5 seconds" and then go back to the mode where the light it orange, like theres no display attached. I tried the 7900GT in the other PCI-E slot, same thing. I'm gonna RMA the card tomorrow, I assume it was a DOA, or else I did something wrong and am about to waste a week of my time
I also got the inkling sensation that maybe my PSU is underpowered. The PSU in it now is a "L&C (never heard of it) 450W", which my friend says is enough for everything in my box. Would it not give a signal if the video card wasn't getting enough power?
Also, if you know specifics about the A8N-SLI board and an eVGA 7900GT video card, I have a 4-pin thingy from the power supply going to the EZ_PLUG slot on th mobo, and then goes on to plug into the convertor that came with the cord, since my power supply doesn't have the type of extension that can plug directly into the card.
Thanks in advance for any comments and suggestions.
