I've just brought a Asus GTX 480 GFX card, I've installed the card into my system and it doesn't pick up that it is installed. (My mobo thinks there is no card in the PCI Express slot) When ever I go to install the drivers off the disk is says "No ASUS GPU Found" or something a long those lines. I got the latest drivers from the ASUS site and direct from Nvidia but still nothing. I got desperate and took it into PC world and spent a good 2 hours swapping all my parts with other systems to find any faults we came to the conclusion that it is my mobo which is a HP M2N68-LA (Narra3) does not like my card. I thought no biggie (I planned on getting a OC Sandy bridge bundle) luckily I held out till after this SATA fault was discovered. I was just wondering what the best option would be. Wait for the new Sandybridge boards to come out (Any time frame?)
or go for another option. Is there any options people can come up with for PC which needs to handle 3D graphic design, Games programming, Video and Photo editing and Gaming? All I need is a Mobo,CPU and memory. I have a GTX 480 which i plan to go SLI with, Coolermaster 690 Nvidia edition case and a Coolermaster 900w PSU. I would like an easy OC'able CPU if possible.

I am assuming you have both a 480 and a 580?

This may sound like a very silly question, but how does your monitor show anything if the 580 is installed, and the OS doesn't see it. You have disabled the onboard video haven't you?
