I have amobo A780GM-A new. A 2.7 athlon cpu, 4 gigs of memory g-skill, build in ATi 3200 video card. The problem is that after install windows and drivers for mobo and video display, after a few minutes the screen on the monitor will go off. Try everything but did not work. Baught an external PCI_E X16 video card and still have the same problem. What can be this crazy problem?
Well You Should Check Your Power Settings On The Computer Also I Had The Same Problem Last Year And What Happened Was That The Monitor Was Starting To Burn Out So I Got A New And Now It Works Great. I Also Checked The Monitor Setting Before Getting The New One

You need to have 6 gigs of free dynamic ram.(Not including that used by the operating system and any other applications you have.
The way that memory is organised in a computer these days is usually in pairs or DRAM (dynamic random access memory) sticks which are matched. This allows the CPU to withdraw data from both memory sticks in the same clock cycle (DDR double data rate) which improves the over all speed of the processing.
So legal combinations over 4 gigs which will use the dual channel feature on your motherboard will probably be.
2 x 4 gigs sticks = 8 Gig DRAM
2 x 8 gig sticks = 16 Gig DRAM
Below is the minimum specification requirement.
Note: MINIMUM Faster CPU better graphics card and More ram is better.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better

First time I heard that But Maybe your board needs a bios update which I personally wouldn't do unless you really know what your doing. I would buy better ram and more of it and just use the two slots that work.
Unfortunatly your still running low end CPU power and low end agp graphics. Your going to pay 150-200 just for a fair PCIe/AGP HD/3D VC. If $200 doesnt hurt (and this is the lowest price best option), then might I suggest Mobo/CPU/RAM for around $200 that would do the trick and allow for future upgrades. You might also need a power supply. I just built one less than 3 weeks ago for a friend and it fairs against my own gaming comp.

You motherboard has onboard video. It's possible it needs to be disabled and the option changed to use the pci or pci-express slot for the Ati card you installed. Since you have no post error beeps this is the best place to start. Also I had built a system not to long ago and had a similar problem. Resetting the cmos on the motherboard (usually a pin combo) solved the issue.
Start by hooking up your vga cable to the onboard video.
