Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 (no display or boot)

I had an old HP Pavilion Desktop given to me because it wasn't needed anymore. I'm interested in servers and networking so decided to turn that HP into a home server. It came with an Intel Core 2 Duo, not quite sure which one exactly, but I recently bought an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.5GHz as a nice little upgrade. I installed it in the system and powered it on to find that there is no video output from the mother board and the system is not coming up on Network Connected devices in my router, the system however runs. If anyone can help me, do I need to install a GPU or something? Thanks in advance :)

Case: EVGA DG-76

If it hasn't got onboard graphics then yes you need to add a GPU in order for it to display an output.

Possible issues:

-Your motherboard does not support quad cores

-You didn't update the bios 

-Your motherboard does not support anything with an fsb higher than 1066 (meaning that 7000 series, 8000 series and 9000 series c2d's won't work either)
