Need tech help building my system
I am building a gaming system (outlined below) and am having trouble.

Hard Drive (HDD):Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s
I have put together the MB, PS, and Memory and placed my video card in (1950xtx) and am not getting any signal to my monitor (light blinks on switch so no signal). I can plug the monitor into my old computer and it works fine. If I unplug it from either computer it gives me a message to check the cable. The video card has power to it, the fan is running. I am having to run thru a CRT adapter because I have an older 17" CRT monitor. I have used 2 adapters that came with the video card to make sure one of those was not bad, still no signal. I tried my other monitor and no better.
I am wanting to check to find out if the problem is my new video card or perhaps MB or CPU. In the past if my CPU's failed, the fans did not work on the CPU cooler, or video card and the front panel reset and switch would not work. All are working great on this system. One other thing, this MB has no speaker hookup "optional". Ha, how do you diagnose the system without beeps. I do not have another system to try the video card on, all are too old and have AGP setups.
Any ideas anyone?
