Ok, I purchased a new Radeon 9800 pro (only $299cdn @ bestbuy) and a 350 watt power supply. I installed both and everything seems to be fine but the monitor doesnt display anything. I know nothing is wrong with the monitor because the same thing happens to my other one when I hooked it up and I can tell that there is power going through it because the light comes on. The 9800 can't be at fault because I took it out and the same thing happened. I am getting very frustrated because this is only my second problem and yet it has been like 3 hours and im sure I will have plenty more when I boot up. I would appreciate it if someone could lead me in the right direction.

Did you connect the square ATX12v connector to your board? Did you connect the 4-pin power cable to your video card?

The power cable comes pre-attached to the card, and the system beeps if the cable isnt plugged in....diklick.

I dont know what the problem was but I just took all the power supply cords out and reattached them and then it worked.

LOL, I was going to tell you I'm not gay either, but I was trying to let you down easy.
