Ok, so i just got an rx 580. It wouldn't fit in my main pc so i decided to do a pc transfer from my main pc to a new case.
It didn't fit in that one too.
I finally got a case which all my components fit aslong with the graphics card. When i tried booting it up, it booted from the integrated graphics (intel hd). The graphics card's light was up but the fans weren't. So i thought i have to install windows 10.
And so i did, i restarted and nothing. So i tried going up in bios. Altered some settings to boot up without the integrated graphics. And no signal.
So i thought ram was the problem so i installed 4 more. 8GB in total. Any ideas?
My motherboard's name is: GIGABYE GA-H61M-S2PV
I also tried switching the power source from 520 to 600W. Still nothing. I might be wrong but i think it's required to have 8 pin allimentation. But it has a 6pin slot, so i don't think its required.
Somebody have ideas?

If your 520W and 600W don't have 8-pin plugs, then they were low-quality, junk PSUs that were "520W" and "600W."

Not sure what you're referring to for "6pin slot," but very few (if any, I just don't recall if anyone tried) RX 480s would have just a 6-pin PCIE requirement.

This is where a much clearer explanation would be helpful. You didn't specify your exact RX 480 or your exact PSU, let alone anything else about your PC outside of the motherboard.

Well i guess the rx 580 worked with an 8 pin plug. Thank you for the explenation.
