    Hi.

    I have just bought a brand new XFX 8800GT 512MB ALPHA DOG EDITION 640Mhz
    When i plugged the card into my Nforce630a PCI-16X slot , plugged in 6-pin and i hit the Power On , the PC won't boot at all !%$#@

    My PSU is Fortron BlueStorm 500W(500w peak, its 460w real) The PSU has 2x12V+ rails with 17.5A each. So is there any problem with my PSU or i should return the card tomorrow and take new one ???
    By the way i unplugged all Cds HDDs... and it wont boot again.

    Please help me , im despered ...

    Have you tried the Biostar site? Im sure i heard somewhere they have done a new Bios with GT compatability,,Worth a try.

    This looks like a winner, though I'd make sure I selected the right model first:
