Ok. So I've finally almost completed my pc build today but I ran into some problems. I ran my windows disk like normal and set everything up blah blah blah. Then I decide my pc is ready for my gtx 760, apparently it wasn't. I put it in the pcie- x16 3.0 slot on my Mobo but didn't install the drivers while it was in there ( because, we'll, I couldn't see anything on my screen.) I had my screen hooked up via hdmi to my mobo hdmi from my i5-3570k, but it wouldn't recognize anything was there. Any help is greatly appreciated as my Battlefield buddies miss me! Thanks in advance.

Specs-

i5-3570k @ stock
Asus Sabertooth Z77 1155 Motherboard
Gtx 760 Twin Frozr
HX 650w power supply
160GB 7200 Rpm HDD

Once you have the graphics card installed, the system should default to outputting video through it. You should move your HDMI cable to your new GTX 760 and restart. I'm not entirely certain, but you will probably need to get all of your drivers installed and up to date before you will have sound through that cable, but you should have a video signal at low resolution as soon as you hook everything up.

Okay, so your answer was correct, for some reason it took around 10 minutes to post! Thank you and sorry , boys; rookie mistakes by me in being impatient!
