Motherboard won't detect new GPU. Why?

  1. I have a 880GM-USB3 rev 3.1 motherboard, and I just got a 560 Ti EVGA GPU. I jammed the thing in there (It was a tight fit,), and even though the fan spins and everything, my computer won't detect the fact that there's even a card inserted!

    The thing I had before was a 520 EVGA card, and it read that fine, and all of my drivers are up to date, so I'm really confused :(

    Plz help!

    You may need to configure System BIOS to detect your PCIe graphics adapter. Have a look through your settings and see if you have options for video priorities.

    Nope, turns out I'm just a retard. You know those extra cables, the ones that look like they go to a power supply, the ones that CAME IN THE BOX, yeah, turns out I needed to use those.

    Nevermind! Sorry. Thanks anyway though :D
