I am using a gigabyte Z87X-UD3H motherboard and a XFX Radeon R9 290 graphics card, however with the graphics card plugged in I just get a black screen. and Im not really sure what I can do to change this as my when I've ran my computer with the integrated graphics being the primary one my computer doesn't seem to be detecting that I have the graphics card plugged in.

you mean you still plug your monitor to the motherboard video output when you have the R9 290 plug in?

Yeah the only cable i've got for my monitor doesn't fit into the back of my R9 290 so i plugged straight into the motherboard.

Buy a HDMI/DVI cable and connect it to your gpu, NOT to the motherboard. But first be sure your monitor supports HDMI/DVI or you will have to buy a new monitor too!
