ok so I put this build together: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/wS1X
and I put in the graphics card but it wont power on, everything else will, do I not have enough power from the PSU to support the graphics card?
because before this everyone told me it should be plenty and work without a problem.

If the GPU is not installed, you can boot fine into BIOS and OS using the integrated graphics?

Which PCI-e 3 slot are you installing into, the one just above the battery or the one between the PCI slots? When installed, the system won't power on at all? Are BOTH PCI-e power connectors secure?

I can boot fine into everything without the graphics card, and I tried using the slot right above the battery and it didn't work so now it's in the one between the PCI slots, I have made sure the PCI-e Power connectors are secure, and when I put the graphics card in it will boot the computer fine but not detect the graphics card and the graphics card itself isn't even turning on what so ever..

Just to clarify, the computer will work with the integrated graphics regardless if the graphics card is in or not.

With the graphics card removed, use integrated video to make sure current PCI-e drivers are loaded, and load the drivers for the graphics card. Then shutdown, install graphics card in slot above battery, and turn on.

Make sure have monitor connected to graphics card and proper input selected on monitor.

also, how do I make sure the PCI-e drivers are loaded? I'm sure you already know but my slot is PCIe 3.0 x16 and the mobo is the asrock z77 extreme4

Have you loaded the OS yet and loaded all of the motherboard drivers?
Have you installed the drivers for the graphics card?

to answer the first question, yes.. I'm going to reinstall the mobo drivers though but it wont let me install the graphics card drivers without it being detected on the motherboard it said.

if motherboard won't detect the card, possible bad PCI-e slot or card issue.
should be able to work using default drivers before you load specific ones for that card.
