Installed a new PSU, but ran into problems. Help?

So I just got a new PSU for my (also new) video card, but my computer won't start up. The blue interior light , my fan, random green lights, and my CD tray are working properly, but nothing is showing up on my monitor. Any ideas for this one?

Dumb question, did you plug the video card power connector too? I think your card uses 1 PCI-E power connector.

Yes, it was a 6-pin PCI connector. Made sure of that three or so times.

Also, my mother board:

I would try plugging the monitor in the motherboard outputs and taking the video card out to test. if it boots that way it may be a problem with the video card.

Try a BIOS reset. Also, XFX is not known for their quality.

Did the video card and motherboard worked before you tried the new PSU? Or you had not test either yet?

A lot if XFX PSU's are actually rebranded SeaSonic units.

Edit: Actually, I think all of their PSU's are rebranded SeaSonic units.

Edit2: NM. Didn't realize the GPU was the XFX. Not sure how their GPU's are.

Yeah, xfx power supplies are good. Did you plug in the 4-8 CPU power plug or the 24 pin?

Really dumb question, but the monitor is plugged in (to a power source aka socket/outlet/etc etc), right?
