Hi guys,
This is my first post, has I never had to ask anything I did always find answer on someone's similar issue.

So I bought this new rig by parts to build myself like I did before.
And I can't seem to get the graphics card detected, I've installed windows 7 using mobo integrated graphics card. On bios I've disabled the on board graphics card and set the init primary card for PCIE 1 and nothing,
The GPU has power connectors which are powered by 2x 6 pin, fans are running. And no signal at all, tryed dvi and hdmi, changed the GPU to the 2nd PCI-E x4 as well.
On windows device manager the GPU is not detected and doesnt let me install any nvidia drivers.

I'm loosing my mind with this and I dont want to send it back.

My specs are:
Intel I7-4770k
Gygabite Ga-Z87-D3HP
Inno3d Gtx 760 OC 4gb Herculez 2000
OCZ Modxtream 600W

Could be a DOA card, do you have another system you could test it in?

Or do you have another card you can test in the system? Sounds like a DOA card to me, too. I usually just let the mobo's BIOS pick the graphics card. Everytime I've build one as soon as the discrete GPU is detected, the onboard graphics is disabled. If you are still getting a signal to your onboard graphics, the card isn't getting detected.
