Does that mean you're using the PCIe card anyway, or is it not fitted yet and the monitor out taken from the onboard video output?
my video card is missing power.
I turned it on anyways

Whilst the machine is powered up, did you move the Video connector to the On-Board one to see if that ones working?

Edit: Ah, OK, seems you probably just need the auxiliary power to the GPU then.
what is a POST beep...
EDIT: OK, so, I found an adapter inside the box that came with my video card that converted a VGA into whatever the GPU uses (its not DVI) and it just gave me a blinking "You have not connected one of the PCI cords in" error, so I now know that it works =)

I don't understand, these seem to contradict.
I turned the computer on anyways with the GPU plugged in
the GPU only has white slots with a weird looking plug-in so I couldnt even put it in the mobo
If the PCIe video card is slotted into the motherboard but no aux power connected, it may be shutting off the video on the motherboard.
When you start up the computer, it first runs the POST (Power On Self Test) and should give a single beep to indicate successful completion of the hardware tests. If there is no beep, it is not getting to complete the POST sequence, so there is a fundamental hardware problem.
If you find the system is booting up and gives the single beep, but nothing appears on the monitor screen, there's a problem with the video operation.
