I don't have any spare MoBos or Pci-E cards. The best I could do was try it in the 4x Pci-E slot. As stated before it booted once and got to the windows screen and then crashed. Now I can't replicate the boot at all in either slot and I've cleared th e CMOS repeatedly.

I don't know whats up with this because I've never seen anybody kill their card from forgetting this Pci-E connector. If I can't solve the problem after Christmas then I'll go to best buy and try testing a different card instead of buying a cheap on Newegg.
Do you have enough to buy a cheap mobo to test it then return it?

Thread Starter 
I did some more testing and now for some reason I get quad restarts before the MoBo attempts to truely boot. When "booting" my mouse and keyboard never turn on. I checked all the voltages using a multimeter and my PSU is fine. For some reason, the MoBo doesn't even seems like it posts yet the led glows red indicating it is online. The core and mem voltages for the 7900gt are fine (stock).

The suprising thing for me is that nothing alerted me at all that the cord wasn't plugged in. I received no beep warning messages or anything. It seems as if this is a somewhat common mistake that is pretty harmless normally.

I guess I'll try to get the closests thing to what I have now at best buy to check which is a P5B Vanilla and 7900GS.
