Hey guys I just finished putting together a brand new PC and need some help getting things to work. Here is what I have..

-MSI 870A-G54 Motherboard
-AMD Phenom X4 965 BE CPU
-Diamond ATI Radeon HD 5550 Video Card
-4 x 1gb Partriot DDR3 1333mhz ram
-LG 24x DVD Drive
-Seagate 1.5TB harddrive
-550 Watt PSU

When I power up the computer everything seems fine but I cant get any video output from my monitor. I connected it to the video card via VGA. The video card came with a disc which i need to install the drivers but how am i supposed to to that in the first place when I have no picture?

the mobo did not come with an onboard video, thats why I had to buy a card.
