Default Hrm.. I get monitor display now..

Okay, so previously when I turned everything on, everything worked except I didn't get a display on my monitor. I looked at all my cables and what not, everything was good. I decided to move my videocard (XFX 7900GS Xtreme Ed.) from the #2 pci-e slot, to the #1 slot (the one with the broken latch ) and yeah, now my monitor gets a display. Not only that, but the fan on the card is now silent (which is good). When it was in slot #2 the fan was quite loud.. this is weird, to me. Any thoughts? Can't imagine why it would work and be more quiet in slot 1, and not work and be loud in slot 2. :O

maybe just the position maybe the fan in slot 1 was getting a draft from itself or another fan causing it to sound louder
