Hello all, I was at the monthly computer/electronics fleamarket and ran across a G5. He was selling it for parts only. I got it for what I think was a good price. It dodn't have a hard drive or memory. I did come with the ATI mac 9800p video card. It will start up but I don't get any kind of video. So I have a few questions.

How can i tell if the card isn't fried.

Is there another card I can use for testing to see if the mobo is bad.

I am having trouble finding memory to work. I keep getting the 3 blinking lights on the front panel.

There is only one red light on the mobo and I can't find it's a bad red light.
(see pic attached)
I am hoping to fix this somewhat cheap(if possible)
