my psu is fine. its a ultra X3 850 watt standard atx with a bunch of standards it has. But my vid card spins and the lights on the card go on too. and when i unplug the monitor from the card it says no connected so When I do it goes yellow, the power button for screen.
gdavis480, could you provide the forum with all of your systems specs & components. It is hard to troubleshoot without it. SonGanon, please don't hi-jack this thread, as it makes things too confusing. Start a new one. PSU 'watts' aren't so much the issue, amps are. Are the PSU's 'single', or 'multi' +12V rail(s)?
This could be a RAM problem, that is why it is so important to have all the system info, including the PSU amps per rail(s).
Visiting the Apevia website, your PSU is a 'split rail' +12V V1 @ 22A, & V2 @ 24A. The problem could well be the PSU. Do you have access to a 'single' rail PSU with +12V around 46+A's? Also, as n3B0dy88 mentioned, can you test the VGA card in another system?
Not listed in your component list, but the number of HDD's, Optical Drives, & other PCI Devices, all pull power resources. V1 or V2, possibly can't supply the needed power to the VGA.
