GPU compatibility with motherboard

  1. Hi,

    I just bought an ASUS GTX560TI gpu and intalled it in my Asus P5G41T-M LX3 Motherboard . The GPU does not seem to give output or is not being recognized by the MB. Could there be compatibility issues between the 2 cards or is it a fault with the GPU. My old Radeon 4890 works fine. The only reason I am upgrading is because Windows 8 is not compatible with my old card. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks....

    Did you remember to connect a power supply connection to the new video card?

    Check the bios and see if the first video device is set as PEG (PCIe video)
