What happens when you turn the computer on? Do you get the normal POST beep? If you leave the PC, does it appear to boot (but without display) and play the Windows tune when it gets in to Windows?

I'm not sure that it's not compatible, as the BIOS must recognise it is there to disable the onboard graphics. Can you confirm you get nothing on the screen, not even the POST screens?

Also, does your card have both VGA and DVI connectors on it? And which are you connecting your monitor to? Can you also confirm the manufacturer of the card?

I think the DVI port is the primary port. You should have got a DVI-VGA converter with the card. Connect this to the the DVI port, and the monitor cable to that.

You mention you set your pcie card to first priority but have you tried disabling the onboard graphics completely using bios?
