Graphics help

So I just finished my first build, and have run into an issue. The computer won't recognize the MSI 7870 hawk graphics card. It instead goes to the built in one. I have It plugged with one six pin and the other is a six pin with another two pin hanging on the side (is that the issue?) I'm running it with a 550w power supply.

Thanks,
Jacob

Make sure in the bios that it is set to use the discrete graphics over the integrated.

I figured it out! I switched the card over to a different pci slot and it worked!
