    Try a different cable from your monitor to the video card. The cable may have stopped working.

    Guys can I ask you a question since I already have this thread.

    What is your opinion about eVGA GeForce GTX 650 Superclocked 2GB DDR5? Is it a good GPU... I know that it's not the best but overall in contrast with its value... Thanks!

    Don't fall for those expletives like "Superclocked" "Gamer" "Top" etc. A nice paint job and some factory OC with OV to boot and it's just another GPU and with a bit of settings, any old one, specially Ti version can do same thing, one or two frames in a game you can't feel. There's nothing special about those "super brands" except price. A bit of fiddling with it's bios can do same thing. If you have one of those or can get one for decent price, fine but paying a lot of extra money for it is not worth it.

    Ok. But it is the same price without the overclocked.. In general I was wondering if it is a good GPU..

    Around here, Asus 750 Ti is just less than 10 E more expensive than 650 OC and newer chip too. I'd rather go for that one. It's not a fluke it's one of most popular ones in mid range cards.

    I found the problem. I did not notice that the card had two PCI e connectors and I connected only one. That was the problem. Now the card runs just fine. Amazing GPU... very happy!

    Hmmmm. I asked you that in my first post, you said it was. That's usually first thing to check. Glad it's sorted out. Be happy.
