HD 4670 Won't work with ASrock 970 Extreme4

Specs: none yet, Phenom ii X$ 955 BE

I just installed an ASrock 970 Extreme4 mobo, Kingwin 730 watt psu, Phenom ii X4 955 BE and a Visiontek HD4670 GPU and when I tried to boot it all up for the first time, the GPU wouldn't display an image on the monitor. All the fans work, the mobo power switch turns the system on but won't shut it off for some reason and the mobo reset switch doesn't seem to do anything. I was using the VGA port on the card, not the DVI if that makes a difference. I don't have a monitor or adapter for DVI.

Do I have a bad GPU card or motherboard or is it something else?

Benchtesting is a step that should never be skipped. Tear everything out of the case & start from scratch.

Followed the steps and the GPU still isn't showing a display, the GPU fan is turning though.

I've also noticed that when I turn on the pc there aren't any beeps from the board and the Dr. Debug display doesn't show anything at all. Bad mobo you think?

If the mobo has a speaker built in or you do have one hooked up and it doesn't post, the board is probably bad. As long as you know the psu is good, it's most likely the board.

As far as I can tell the board is good, it runs the fans fine :)

The fans are only one part of the board that requires power. If it doesn't post, it's probably the board. You can't do any other tests if the board doesn't kick in.

I sent an email to ASrock today, I'll let you know what they say.
