I recently got a new motherboard, plugged everything, lights went on, fans spin. But my my monitor says no signal and there are no beeps. My graphics card worked before. Is it possible I messed it up because I didnt ground myself? Unfortunately I don't have any other system to test my parts on and I don't have an integrated graphics. Thanks in advance.

Radeon HD 7770
I5 5970k
WD 1tb SATA hard drive
ASUS P8067 motherboard

Unless you are dragging your feet on the carpet and shocking things every touch on metal you probably did not fry your graphics card from improper grounding.

Is the card recognized in the operating system?

Did you connect the 6-pin from the power supply to the card?

Is it installed in the proper slot (usually the one closest to the cpu)?

Which connection on the card are you using?

Have you cycled your monitor through all its inputs?

So an I5-3570K DOES have integrated graphics. Most likely it needs to be turned off to allow the graphics card to work. It may need to be disabled in the BIOS. You can check using the ports right off the motherboard.
