AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD motherboard
PowerColor AX6770 1GBD5-H Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP video card
CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

VGA connector. I'm not 100% sure they are compatible. I came up with the build myself and had it checked online and by two friends and all three said it looked fine. I do not know how to check to be 100% sure they are compatible.

i check the board and card makers and it should work , the board is pci-e 2.0 and the card is pci-e 2.1 but it should be backward compatible and work with the board ,any chance there could be a problem with your monitor, you did plug the One 6-Pin PCI Express Power connector into the video card ,right
