I recently bought a msi R9 290x and have been using it for at least a week with no problems, then today when i started up my computer it beeps and says no signal on my monitor, I then took out the R9 290x and put in my old gpu and my computer started up fine. I was wondering if this is a Gpu problem or a psu Problem or some this else entirely. 


My Pc specs are listed bellow 


Operating System
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.20GHz
8.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz
Corsair TX650

What is the make and model of the old GPU?


I have to ask... did you check the power connection on the card to be sure both cards are powered?


Did the GPU work at all the last time you turned it on, or was it nonfunctional?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

The make of the old model was a AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series. I Checked the power cords that go directly go into the card, also I don't SLI these cards if that's what your inferring. Like I said I uses the MSI R9 290X for at least a week with no problems then then suddenly 1 day it stopped working. I also removed it cleaned it for any dust and put it back in and nothing happened. I personally think it could be a PSU issue because the model PSU I use is a TX 650 (corsair). For your last question when I was having the issue, no it didn't work at all so non-functional. 



The the thing is I need a new graphics card that can handle most nowday games like Counter Strike Global offensive, Guild Wars 2, League of legends and some others. Just simply my Old GPU just cant handle them in good quality graphical setting. Is there any GPU that you can recommend I could get that can handle these games at a budget of £300 or if you know of a solution to the MSI R9 290X.
