Wow, that thing has four DVI connectors! Oops, I see the confusion. I meant try connecting the monitor cable to a different DVI port on the video card to see if you can get a signal.

Are both PCIe power plugs connected to the card?

Yup, I reinserted it 3 times. I think tomorrow I'm going to try to lay my mobo on a anti static bag with everything pluged in and see if it posts

Is this a good idea?

Are you using the 8 pin adapter that came with it? That thing is junk and never worked at all for me.

I had to use a 6+6 pin to 8 pin adapter that came with my 4870 x2 to make it work in 3D at all.

EDIT: use cardboard.
It is a good idea. tests for shorts.
