first i got a "SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card ( 11202-00-20G)"

hooked it up and everything, but i couldn't get my computer to recognize it...did a little bit of troubleshooting...realized i needed a bigger power supply...hooked a 500W power supply up, and figured everything would work fine, but still having the same issue. can't get the graphics card to work. any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

can you see if someone has another pci video card that you could plug in and see if the pci video card slot in gpu-z is reading right.

If you had to get a new Power Supply for your computer then i will assume that you were running on integrated graphics before and you need to make the switch in your BIOS to PCI-e x16 graphics slot. The BIOS should control all those things, i had to do this exact same thing once with a 5770.

sorry I didn't realize you had any video.

looks like you're running on standard windows drivers?

if you haven't downloaded the CCC yet, do it.

Your post title is "Cannot get graphics card running". Yet you say you get video, so obviously it's running......

Not sure how you would expect it to be recognized if you failed to install the driver.

Are you connecting your monitor to one of the motherboard video outputs, and not the new graphics card?
