I took out the video card and it booted (well all the fans spun and the lights turned on) I made a post on tech forums and a couple people said it was probably a bad video card so I RMA'd it... When I didn't have it I was using some 15 year old PCI card and it still had the same issue
When I got back the card all that was in the box was the card, the driver disk and one converter didn't even get the fancy box, but the card I did get OC's MUCH better then my old one. This one I have gotten 750/1100 stable. The other one gave me artifacts at stock speeds.
So anyways that's good that they all take 2 6 pin power connectors. Now I don't have to worry about which card I get.
