I just got a Radeon 6770, installed it, installed Catalyst Control Center from the disk it came with...but I can't find the card in device manager (just my integrated 4250).

Could I have missed a step? My mobo is a GIGABYTE GA-880GMA-USB3.

You typically need to disable the integrated graphics in BIOS and remove the driver for it before installing the CCC & 6770 drivers. You may also need to select PCI-E as the Vid source in BIOS depending on your BIOS options.

Wait so you mean that it is normal for the new card to not show up in the device manager AT ALL? And then once I eliminate the old drivers for the onboard card it will appear?
