    So i bought a r9 280x toxic for my system and have a 8 pin and 6 pin connected to it from the PSU which will power the fans and lights upon it but when i plug it into the monitor i get no signal, I've also added another PSU so it has 2 8pin connections but still nothing. The motherboard also has been updated to the most recent bios. At the moment i'm using my inbuilt graphics and they work relatively OK for basic tasks but the GPU doesn't even shows up in device manager. What should i do?

    I'd try cleaning the connections and blowing out the slot it's installed in. If that doesn't work, since you've had the same issue with 2 PSU's the card you bought may be bad.
