I recently bought an HD 7850 graphics card, but when I installed it, my computer does nothing.  No keyboard, no monitor, no beeps....nothing.  Is the card even compatible with the motherboard?  I plan to RMA the card, but will get a refund rather than a replacement if it isn't compatible.

The card requires a 500w power supply and I'm running a 450w.  This could be the cause of my problems, but if anybody knows about compatibility, please let me know.

Ok, more info.  I installed a 585W power supply, but when I install the card, the computer does the same thing.

Most likely that motherboard, which is sold old it only supports PCIe 1.0 and DDR2 1066, is incompatible with that card.
