No video outputs on the mobo but I put back in the old card (evga 8600gts) and it fired up just fine. So I think we found the problem, correct? I have a couple questions though; Since the new video card (msi gtx 560 ti twin frozr II/OC) is found to be faulty was that the reason I was experiencing lag/choppiness in BF3 or is it still due to my ram/processor? (Would adding 2gigs of ram cure this if this is the case?) Second how would one tell if it is in fact a PSU related problem? Third would I have even been able to play BF3 for an hour or two if in fact the GPU is at fault? Thanks for the help so far guys.
