Plug only the 6pin in. Use the same connector you used for the HD3870, if it still doesn't work, check your PSU rails, you might not have enough amps, if you have at least 18a on that rail, then your card is faulty.

All the 12v rails on the Antec TPQ-850w have 18A and I tried 2 3870x2s and they both had that problem. Not sure on what it is. I really don't want to have to get a new PSU

18a might not be enough to power the HD3870x2... Really weird, it should be enough :

Yeah, and the thing is, its "certified" from AMD for the 3870x2. I suppose I need a new PSU.

I would contact Antec and whoever makes your X2 for official tech support. I know your board should run that card as others have that board and card with no issues.

yea, i should really talk to the tech support since I have no idea. since i have tried 2 identical ATI branded 3870x2s, I am leaning towards the PSU problem. Reps given

Hey folks, I need some advice - I'm going to get one HD4850 when they come out in a couple of week, plus a Fortron X3 dedicated VGA power supply. So this would leave me with about 100$ for a CPU (considering higher prices where I live, around 75-80$ US).
What would be the best AM2 socket CPU for that price (lets just assume it's going to be on par with a stock 8800GT)? I don't want the CPU to bottleneck the card much, and I'm completely unfamiliar with overclocking, but I can't afford more. Advice would be really appreciated?

Man, can't wait for the HD4850! Mass Effect should fly on one of these w/ 8AA/16AF!

If you can scrounge a little extra (like $9 to $14 more) this is your best bet for your budget http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103771 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103773. If you can go a little higher , like $150 there is this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103254 . Some might knock the X3 but an extra core is an extra core. Plus they are the fixed TLB versions. Ideally I would say save for a full X4 for around $200 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103251 again these are the newer fixed TLB versions. Post what you decide to get in the AMD cpu forum, you will find lots of folks there to help with more info about your choice.
