Make sure you put the monitor cable to the card (not the motherboard). And make sure you put the GPU correctly and the 6-pin PSU cable must be plugged (that means connect all 6-pin or 8-pin PCI-E power cable connector needed for the GPU).

But if i put the cable to the GPU then it will simply show a black screen since it wont work. But if i plug it into me motherboard then i can see the eveything.

Have you try to change the Graphics into PCI-E in the BIOS when you are booting when you put the monitor cable to the motherboard?

Sorry man I don't have any ASUS motherboard to look at, but you may try searching. It's probably located under ''√°dvanced'' or something.
