I built a Custom PC.. today, my last component arrived and I installed it.
Now.. when I connect it to a monitor, it says No signal.. and one of those plugs made the monitor go to hibernate mode.

pc:

ASUS p9z77-v mobo
ATI radeon HD 7870 videocard
i5 processor

help is appreciated

Are you using a VGA monitor with the VGA-DVI adapter? If so, it is most likely only one of the two DVI ports will work with a VGA signal...

Alternatively, it might be a power issue. What wattage is your PSU? Do you have onboard graphics on your motherboard so you can be sure it is the card that is the focus of the issue?

Connect powercord to your videocard ...
Check BIOS to see if it boots from PCI-E first

Fixed it! it appears the onboard collided with my graphics card.. so had to remove the graphics card first.. plug the VGA on the onboard one and I was settled.
then. (because its an asus mobo) I had to manually configure from the BIOS as @panther said.

with that being said. I have my Epic System Ready!

It is possible.
Some mainboards have The setting that forces the onboard gpu first.
