New build startup

Last response: in Systems

Im ready to start my new home built PC.

Quick question - I bought an XFX HD 5770 card and have it installed. Im wondering if I should expect that this should work outof the box? I have no way to install drivers until after it boots but not sure how an aftermarket card will perform without the drivers installed. The MOBO (ASUS P6X58D-E) does not have on board video so I don't think I have much choice but just wondering what to look for on startup.

Ive previously built a couple of PCs but have not in a while so any advice before flipping the switch is appreciated.

build includes:
Asus p6x58d-e mobo
Intel i7 930 CPU (Hyper 212 + heatsink)
XFX HD 5770 video card
skil ripjaw - 12GB ram
2 WD black SATA3 HDD's
Corsair TX850 PSU
single blue ray/DVD disk reader
HAF 932 case

Any mobo has some sort of onboard video that you can use to get into your OS and install what you need.

OK - then can you point me in the right direction. I listed the specific mobo (ASUS P6X58D-E) but I don't see anywhere to connect a monitor.

just put the5770 in the mobo and hook it up normally, it'll use generic drivers until you can install ccc.
