  1. I just put the finishing touches on a mid level system. I purchased an Asus En8500GT Silent graphics card to top it off. However, when I place the card in my PCIE slot, the system makes no display through either output on the card. The card, mobo and everything else is brand new. I tried the card in two other systems, in which it worked in one, but not the other. No display, no bios, no nothing. I can boot the system with another PCIEx card successfully (1950xt radeon), but the Asus does not seem to work.

    Here are my specs.

    Asus EN8500GT Silent
    M Audio Delta 66 Sound Card
    Athlon Dual Core 4600+ (low power version)
    2gb 800mhz DDR 2 Mem
    500w Antec True Blue Power Supply
    (2)Asus 18x LiteScribe drives
    250gb Seagate Sata Drive
    Elite Group C51GM-M HT2000 Nforce 6100 Chipset

    You answered your own question... the video card is NOT compatible with the motherboard. Use the 1950xt radeon

    that 8500gt doesnt perform much better than your own card anyway. Only thing it allows is windows vista. And vista usually decreases frame rates by 10fps from a xp upgreat. Check the specs of your mobo, it may only be compatible with ati video cards.
