Good stuff, thank you. If i disconnected the gpu and used the onboard could both sticks work? My GPU needs at least 550w though.

What if I disconnect the optical drive? Worth a shot? It's got sata power.

I am aware of the power supply requirements. Either of the ones I linked will work (they actually both supply more power than the one you have)

It should not make much of a difference. If you want to try to run the computer now, remove the video card and usr the onboard graphics (plug monitor into motherboard)

Here is a little proof on how the power supplies are adequate.

http://techspot.com/review/359-nvidia-geforce-gtx-560ti/page11.html

As you can see, even with an overclocked I7 920, the total system draw is under what either of those power supplies can give. With your Athlon ii x2, the power draw will be 80ish watts lower at least.

Alright I'll look into my system requirements and I'll try it out without the gpu. I appreciate your help.

Alright, inconsistency all around, lol. With the gpu out and both sticks in it booted once or twice boot wouldn't really work; only works with one stick. My dad said that the capacitors near the ram look bulged. He set up a lubuntu usb boot which includes memtest86+, two passes on each stick separately. So maybe it's the capacitors.

if the caps are bulged replace the board. it's that simple.

A picture would help us to see.

If nothing feeds to the monitor from onboard video or video card it is either the power supply or motherboard.

If it were ram it would display a message about not having memory installed or have a post error
If it were the cpu it would display an error message about not having anything installed or have another error.

    I have yet to see a computer behave this way.  If it doesn't have a CPU and at least one memory stick installed, you will get no video output at all.  If there is a speaker on the motherboard, it will emit some beep code.  If the new, top-of-the line motherboards can initialize a video card (or onboard video) to display critical POST error messages without a CPU and RAM installed, I'd sure like to hear about it!  Same goes for inability to use the installed CPU or RAM for any reason.
