I posted this in AMD General didnt help much, thought I would try here looking for answers.

Just finished a new build with existing parts. Went to install 6970 that I got back from XFX RMA, Ran into the problems listed below.
As stated in RMA for XFX

Finished new build, plugged card in. No picture at all. didnt display anything for bios.
Tried restarting, a few times no luck. Tried a diffrent card in same slot works fine, windows and everything works. took a break for a while checking e-mail, listening to music. Came back and tried card in a diffrent slot. Wow it works, wait when windows boots no audio. Shut pc down check everything out, audio and card mount, all ok and restart, back to no bios "blank screen". Allright intermittent to a dead display with no audio. Take card out, install my other card, it works fine, wait no audio. Searched for audio problem nothing worked, only speakers popping, on board sound card dead. Odered new mother board, to scared to install current GPU on it. Thought I would consult with a tech before installing on a new mother board. Current motherboard is working with 470 gpu with no sound except with a usb head phones, . The whole time gpu did not display any lights green, red. indicating good start up or a failure.

OK I, called XFX because waiting for e-mail response took way to long. Dropped 3 e-mails there was no response. Thought a call was warranted, Called they told me to just go ahead and drop the 6970 in new motherboard, the card woudnt work in mine cause its a pci 2.1. Im like wait isnt the 6970 made for the 2.1 pci.

I need someone to help I really dont want to get a new motherboard and install 6970 and it screw that motherboard up as well. Then have to play this stupid RMA process with 2 motherboards and 1 gpu. About to defect to nvidia.

I like my card just wish it would work properly.
