Help: gpu won't display anything

Hi im building my first pc and everything is working except my video card. I was wondering if my video card was compatible with my motherboard. I havent installed windows or anything yet. but it does boot into bios with a stick of ram inserted. the problems occurs when i connect the monitor to the gpu, i dont get anything on the display.

My build:

Motherboard : ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS [...] -_-text-_-

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I73770 [...] -_-text-_-

Video Card: ASUS ENGTX560 TI DCII TOP/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card [...] -_-text-_-

PSU: Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W Continuous @40°C,80 PLUS Certified, Single 12V Rail, Active PFC "Compatible with Core i7,i5" Power Supply [...] -_-text-_-

Thank You (please no flaming on the build, but suggested changes are appreciated)

  1. I am confused. How do you know it is booting to Bios if you can't see it on the monitor?
  2. If you are looking at the integrated graphics then you have to disable that in the bios and select the card.

    yeah sorry for my wording. but yeah when i plug the monitor into the integrated graphics it does work and it boots to bios. but the second i try to connect the monitor to the graphics card it doesnt work. yeah i tried disabling the integrated graphics card but it still wont work
  4. Do you have both 6 pins attatched? Is the card seated well in the correct slot?

    Are the fans spinning on the card?
  5. under the primany vidoe outut set it to peg no ipgpu. then under that make sure both video ports are enabled. this will make both the ipgpu and the onbord video work. also make sure your mb bios is up to date.
  6. spammer reported.

    in the BIOS ( see motherboard booklet ) you need to enable video card slot ( PEG-pci-auto ) so the on board gets by passed. after making changes follow save instructions. if you mess things up, reset cmos ( also in booklet )
