    I get a signal with the DVI-D - which I could go back to but was trying to upgrade to the displayport

    You may have to start connected via DVI until you get the drivers for the Video card installed.

    Got the latest driver installed

    So I have 3 monitors and 2 video cards
    The only monitor that has a picture is with the DVI-D.
    My screen resolution shows 4 monitors.
    I'm guessing the 3 from the datacables and one from the DVI.

    The other 2 monitors have the orange light like there is no signal
    I didn't see anything in the bios going to look at monitor settings now.

    Yep it is a setting on the monitor, you have to select like a tv which one to use.
    Now to see if I can get SLI working
