well..i am planning to buy a new graphics card GTX 1660...and i am having a 750Watt power supply..but when i searched on the internet.. i found that people are saying that it gets burned at 500watt and so it should be labeled as a 475watt power supply...the recommended power supply for my graphics card is 450Watt..so what should i do?will this be enough or should i upgrade the power supply?it is CoolMax cul-750B

Gigabyte recommended minimum is 450 watts, if you plan on overclocking at all you should go with at least a decent 500 watt.

Are you in the US ?

A Corsair CX 550 would be the least expensive PSU worth considering. Why can't you start the PC without a GPU? There are only four Sandy Bridge i7s that run on a Z77 motherboard (3770, 3770K, 3770T, 3770S) and all of them have integrated graphics, meaning you can run your PC if your monitor is connected to the motherboard outputs.

well..actually i didn't know that at all..thanks for that information! i am going to test it right now.(btw..is the integrated graphics card able to run a game suck as league of legends or something like that without problems? or is it too weak,sorry..i am kinda newbie?)

OP does the MB have the UEFI BIOS or the Legacy? Also did you try to boot the PC with onboard iGPU to see what happens?

If you can boot the PC with onboard iGPU, then check the BIOS version. I guess your problem related to the BIOS.
