Hi, only thing i can think of is you haven't installed the video card drivers and have left the generic driver Windows installed.

Get the latest drivers from nvidia.com http://www.nvidia.com/page/home.html

As above, you must be missing the drivers, or you have accidentally plugged your monitor into your motherboard and using the integrated graphics, rather than plugged into the GTX 780.

Wouldn't be defaulting as you're using the hdmi out from the video card as you said.

Have you tried the clean install option under custom?

I know you said you're using the card's hdmi and am sorry but just double check you're using the correct hdmi as mentioned :) , it will be horizontal orientation. Motherboards can have hdmi pretty close to the graphics card and can easily be mistaken.

Did a clean install under custom did not try that until now 100% sure plugged into gpu hdmi cable horizontal and on the back of the case. the gpu I/O sit a slot below the Mother board I/O of those removeable plates you pull out the back.

It cannot be using the integrated graphics if you are plugged into the graphics card.

Does the driver installation complete successfully?

yes completed successfully the custom clean install took longer than when i just did the recommended. i also tried to plug the hdmi cable into the motherboard to see for some reason if it would install but i get no signal to my display is this because it is using my gpu btw thanks rob for the replys so far :)

Is it only Smite you are having trouble with?

Tried rebooting after driver installation? I would try reinstalling smite after that. Your GPU is more than capable, so must just be a software bug somewhere.
