I recently bought a new Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 and it refuses to boot. I have a 500w Antec PS which should be enough so I am led to believe the problem is in the dated motherboard. I have an Abit An8 Ultra which runs the original PCI-Express and I've seen on hardware forums there have been several issues with backwards compatibility. I've tried using the VGA outputs as well as adapters for DVI and straight DVI which has worked for some having the same issues. I was hoping someone here might have a few more suggestions before I return this card or have to upgrade my whole system.

You have your 6 pin connector hooked up?

I believe the 5770 requires a PCI-E 2.0 slot.

PCIE 2.0 cards are backwards compatible with PCIE 1.0 slots, I have never had any problem with it, in fact Im doing so right now with my computer right now. I, like dpunisher would like to know if he got the 6 pin power plugged in. Without that, it will not boot.
