Currently I have a gtx 260. The power reqs are similar to the reqs of a gtx 670. The gtx 260 works great. I installed the EVGA GTX 670 FTW 4 gb into the slot previously occupied by the gtx 260.

Upon boot all I got was a black screen.

I opted to connect my monitor into the onboard gfx card in order to see if the pci-e slot even saw the gtx 670. It did not. I put the gtx 260 back in and windows 'sees' the gtx 260.

Now, when the gtx 670 is in the pci-e slot its fan comes on, but then shuts down immediately. It's not a PSU problem (I have a Corsair TX750), because the gtx 260 actually demands more power and it works fine.

My question(s): does anyone have this card? Or a similar one. Did you disable the onboard graphics card through the bios? More to the point, what settings to do you have in the bios? And yes, I updated to the latest bios.

Components of note:

Phenom II X4 955
EVGA GTX 670 FTW 4GB
Corsair TX 750
Hanns G 25" LCD
Windows 7 64

Chances are that the card is simply bad if you connected PSU power to it. The only other question is if you can resolve the issue with BIOS update for your motherboard.
