I purchased a new graphics card today. its an xfx r6670 core edition. I installed it into my computer and i get no signal from my monitor. I uninstall the graphics card and turn on my computer and i get a signal. I have installed the drivers for the graphics card hoping that would solve it but it still doesnt get a signal when it is installed. i have an amd a8 5600k gpu. corsair cx430 psu, 8 gigs of g skill 1600 ram, windows 8. so to recap whenever my new graphics card is plugged in to my computer i get no signal when it is out of the computer i get a signal. Please help and tell me what i can do to solve this problem! i originally thought it was a bad graphics card so i exchanged it now i know its not the graphics card.

Some graphics cards require that a power cable, (6 pin on my machine), from the power supply be hooked up to them. Is your one of those ? and do you have the cable hooked up ?

I would think it is most likely an issue with the driver having issues with windows 8. Try to look into the drivers specs as to what operating system it will work with.
