After Installing new GPU no difference made..

Hi all im new here,anyway thats how it goes. I build up a new pc and after i installed the gigabyte gtx 770 wf 4gb i can see that the device manager shows the gpu there and from windows self rate gpu performance went higher but i cant see any difference on the games and the screen as im sure its still on the integrated gpu from the motherboard.

Bare in mind all components are new

Monitor: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-VG248QE-inch-LED-Monitor/dp/B00B19T7QC

motherboard: http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/MAXIMUS_V_EXTREME/

gpu: gigabyte gtx 770 windforce 4 gb

Could it be possible that the gpu is in the wrong pci slot?
or maybe monitor needs some type of config or drivers?

Thanks in advance
George

More about installing gpu difference made
  1. Did you plug the monitor into the GPU instead of the motherboard? The motherboard only outputs integrated graphics.
  2. Best answer
    Did you plug in your monitor into the VGA card? Usually the on-board graphics are disabled when you plug in a VGA card. Can you post the specs of your system and your monitor? Perhaps your monitor can show the improvement your card is delivering.

    Exactly what i was thinking.

    Also, install the drivers for the card.
  4. Thank you all for the quick answers, guess its gonna be my geek site :) Anyway the hdmi is plugged to the GPU.

    Specs are.

    MB: Asus Maximus V extreme
    CPU: Intel i7 3770k
    RAM: Dominator platinum 2133hz
    GPU: Gigabyte Gtx 770 windforce 4 gb
    Monitor: https://www.asus.com/Monitors_Projectors/VG248QE/

    hope that helps or you wanted something of a benchmark type littleleo?

    Also device manager and screen settings show the gpu working perfectly, its just that no performance was increased and only the system identifies the gpu.
  5. I did yea but it will re do it once again with the once you've sent. IF gpu had no drivers then i guess windows self rate system and device manager wouldnt identify it as well? or i could b wrong...

    Edit: Tried the drivers but still no changes.
