do you get a display screen @ the bios?
Now I'm back and I removed the CMOS battery and memory for 10 minutes. I put them back on and the motherboard still doesn't see the card. Gonna go to my other plan and put an old 4670 card and see if it works.
 replaced the card and the motherboard immediately recognizes it. It reports 4x PCIe speed, and I can use the monitor with it.
So, well, this sucks. I gotta replace another
