I updated the BIOS and still the same thing tried messing with the settings and still the same thing. Im thinking that the card may be to new for the board to support it and Im SOL. anyone have any Ideas? here are the complete specs

Winfast 6150 K8MA series
512Mb DDR PC 3200 Hynix
550W Raidmax PSU

hmm I have not tried that yet.... the only other GPU I have is my 480s but I don't want to blow that little 550W PSU I could borrow someones 2morrow. I do know that card works tho. I was using it at a PhysX GPU for a while and running my second monitor.

A Raidmax 550w? You're crazy!

Your problem is your PSU. If the PSU isn't the culprit, then its the motherboard (which you could test with another PSU and GPU). Replace that PSU first though, I'll bet that's the problem.
