Windows 7: My ASUS P8Z68-V PRO motherboard will not boot with my Radeon HD 6790

My ASUS P8Z68-V PRO motherboard will not boot with my Radeon HD 6790

Hello all,

Looking for some advice on how to get my graphics card to work in my new(ly built) computer. I have recently upgraded to an ASUS P8Z68-V PRO motherboard and i5 chip with 16gb of G.SKILL Ripjaws RAM with a fresh win7 install. For some reason my computer will not start (even to the bios) with that video card in. I have tried it in another computer, no problem. I have installed the drivers from the disc (while the card was out), no change.

This mobo has an interesting bios i wonder if there is some setting that needs adjusting.

Thanks in advance for the help.
