    Hi, I've got a very little understanding of computer hardware compatibility so please bear with me.

    uhm so I was tinkering with my desktop, specs are
    Motherboard: Asus A58M-E
    Processor: AMD A8 6600K
    and I recently added a video card which is the Palit 9500GT 1024MB, so I went to turn it on (DVI plugged into the vid card), but the monitor displayed no signal but the aux fan is spinning, and when I plugged the DVI back to my motherboard it worked again and I looked at the device manager>display adapters and my video card is not detected, the only thing on the list is the AMD Radeon HD 8570D which I think is the APU. what should I do to get my video card up and running?

    The ASUS A58M-E motherboard has AMD Radeon HD 7000/8000 series integrated graphics with up to 2 GB of shared memory.

    The AMD Radeon HD 8570D integrated graphics device has a benchmark score of 665

    The Palit GeForce 9500 GT 1 GB video card has a benchmark score of 290 and requires a power supply with more than 300 watts.

    Post #3 brought out some good points.
