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.
