This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware windows 8.1

I made a new build and tried to install my new ASUS GTX 770, but when I tried to install the drivers from NVIDIA, it says that "this graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware". I also could not find the video card under Device Manager, only the onboard graphics card was recognized. I tried troubleshooting using answers from different forums to no avail. Here are the specs (everything is new):


Here are some of the troubleshooting I went through:

All of these troubleshooting did not help in the computer recognizing the new graphics card.
