Setup:
CPU: AMD - Athlon X4 860K
Motherboard: ASRock - FM2A68M-HD+ Micro ATX
RAM - 2x4gb DDR3-1600
PSU: EVGA - 430 W 80+ Certified

So up until recently, I was using a GTX 1050 as my GPU but got a really good deal on an RX 570 (8GB OC) and decided to take it. I put it into my build today and when I turn the PC on all the fans including the card's start spinning, the mouse and keyboard turn on, but I get no signal on the monitor. I've spent hours troubleshooting it, tried multiple ports and multiple HDMI cables, and nothing I've done has worked. I'm assuming it's the GPU at fault, but how would I be sure? I plugged my 1050 back in and everything works fine, and I plugged my old 750ti in as well and the build also works with that.
Would I be right to just return the card and get a refund?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I went ahead and just requested a return/refund. I ordered another one and it should be here in a couple of days, hopefully, it works. If not then I may have a way bigger problem on my hands 😬
