    I've assembled some new hardware, Asus A8N SLi Deluxe, AMD64 3.2, Asus 6600 GT and 2x512 Kingston.

    When I turned on the pc the monitor stays in standby mode. I checked memories in my old pc and they work fine.

    Any one knows what could be the problem?

    You're using a DVI connection ?

    Have you tried another GFX card in place of the 6600GT? A less powerfull one which works may point the finger at your PSU.

    I bought a Be Quiet! 420W so i think i dont have probs with power, and i can't test with other video card because i only have that with PCI-E. :(

    Are all the fans spinning up and staying on when you power up the system?

    I've not used a PCI-E card but perhaps it could be a bios setting?
