MSI r9 270 driver issue?

I bought a MSI r9 270 a couple days ago, and it can in the mail today.

My system is: motherboard : biostar a960d+
Ram: ddr3 (2×4gb) Kingston 1600mhz
CPU: AMD fx-6100
Psu: corsair cx430
HDD: WD blue 1tb
Os: win 7 64bit

So I installed the drivers from the MSI website and those didn't work, so I uninstalled and installed the latest 14.1 beta drivers from AMD, those again didn't work, so I used the ones in the packaging on the disc, and those didn't work, so I uninstalled everything I could from my old nvidia card and everything related to graphics drivers and installed the ones from MSI's website. Still it won't play any directx or openGL anything. It won't even run valley benchmark. It barely plays YouTube videos. It's showing up in the device manager and msi afterburner as AMD 3000 series graphics.

Should I reinstall windows from a clean slate and format my hard drive and try again? Or is it my PSU? Or motherboard? I am stuck and need help.

Did you connect the PCIE 6 pin power connector to the GPU. Check if your VGA, DVI-D cable is connected to the GPU and not the motherboard.

Instead of trying anything else, yes, it would be good to do a complete reinstall, especially since you had Nvidia drivers on the rig.
But before you do that, you need to go the the AMD website and get the latest drivers for the R9-270, not from MSI but from AMD, and NOT Beta Drivers...., the last stable release is advisable.

Also make sure you have disabled the onboard Display (Since that is a AMD 3000 Series chip) in the BIOS itself.

OR

You can reboot into BIOS, disable the onboard graphics, save , exit and see if the GPU (R9-270) Shows up as an R9-270 in windows..... give this a try before you go ahead....

i disabled the onboard graphics and checked if the power situation, and it was fine. now the only thing showing up in the device manager is "standard vga graphics adapter".

ok now i downloaded the amd cleanup utility and installed the drivers from the amd website. and now it is working perfectly. thank you so much.
