Since nothing appears on the monitor, but the rest of the PC seems to boot, I'd say it's the GPU being the problem here.

I'm extremely satisfied with MSE. When it's not doing anything, you don't even notice it being on. AKA. Everything is blazing fast compared how to used it to be with AVG. Wow. It even made my FPS raise by 10 in Need For Speed Porsche.

I recommend the GTX 460, not that much more expensive than the 5770, but a shitload better.

That's certainly odd. It's not overheating, because then the PC would reboot, not just give you a casual error like that. Only thing I can think of that you can do is the following: Download Driver Sweeper: [url]http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/[/url] Go into s...

Yep. Save some money and build yourself a new one, since, if I'm not mistaken, Dell practically welds their PSUs into the cases, so you can't do anything about it.

Something tells me that the wisest thing to do is to save up some more money, and buy a new motherboard, RAM, and CPU, seeing as the GPU is still atleast decent for a resolution that small.
