Exclamation New Video Card, Monitor Not Turning On...

Its my buddies setup, we just bought a new GFX Card for him, 8500GT 512mb, PCI-E

Heres his setup,

1gb RAM
450watt PSU
AMD 64 3400, I believe? Not sure on that..

But before he was running a very very crappy PCI video card, and now he jumped up to a pci-e video card, and heres what happens we swapped out the cards, pulled out the old put in the new, and when we turn it on, the monitor just stays off, it doesnt power on.. doesnt even show post.... any idea? we called XFX they said update the bios and we did that... and its still not working, some help would be excellent thanks.

Do you know exactly which PSU it is? If its a cheap one, it may be the problem.
