Hello guys I made a custom build and installed Ubuntu 20 on it, wanted to used a card a friend gifted me to process some video files with some effects.
Minus the VGC everything runs well. When i connect the VGC the screen goes black and it never boots, not even BIOS. The power output should be enough, unless i miscalculated that, and i have try all HDMI outputs ports with no luck. I was wondering if I'm missing a step over here or if any of you guys have anytips on how to go about trouble shooting this issue. Many thanks in advance. Below the link to the things i bought.

Does the computer boot when using Intel GPU?



Why you need to use such?
Yeah, if I remove the Video card the computer boots and i can use Ubuntu no problem.
And the video card was gifted to me, so it didn't have the power supply connectors so i purchased them. Do you think that might be an issue with the set up ?

Your PSU should already have the necessary PCI-E power connectors.

I didn't have the 6 pin connector, so I bought one that splits into 8 pins and 6 pins Do you think this might be the problem? I need to buy another power supply or cables ?

According to your PSU specs., it have 2x PCI-E [2+6] cables.



Possible.
Can you also test the GPU in another PC?
No, unfortunately I live in California and everyone uses laptops here. I ordered a more powerful Power Supply 850w if that doesn't work... I might need to find another tower owner around my town.

that was it, the power cables i was using were splitting a 8 pin connector into a 6 and 8 pin, it was not enough juice. I bought two 8 pin connectors and that was the solution thanks for all the help @Svet
