So I recently installed my new xfx hd 5670 into my PC, and when I did I got no signal. I ruled out the obvious solutions such as faulty monitor/video card, video card and/or ram not seated properly. I think it might be my PSU. I say that because after I installed the new video card, the otherwise unrelated CD/DVD drive stopped working also. My graphics card requires 400w and I'm running a cheap 450w

any sort of feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! :]

I would have suggested to change the power supply to a higher one as 400 w will be dedicated for the graphic only and the rest its too less to manage the system with 50 w.Buy a good one for gaming as you will not have to replace it each month ,
