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

  1. you monitor is pluged in where?
  2. Make sure in the bios that it is set to use the discrete graphics over the integrated.
  3. I figured it out! I switched the card over to a different pci slot and it worked!
  4. Glad it worked!
  5. Yah but it looks like I'm out a pci express 3.0 slot for the future
