Bought a Radeon R9 290x and installed it on my EVGA P55V, and the fans run, but I get no output to monitor. I checked connection, updated BIOS, Uninstalled old drivers, everything! Is it just that my motherboard can't handle it??

Thanks guys, but I figured it out. Apparently I was trying to use either the 8 OR the 6 pin connector, and that led to nothing. Found someone who had the same issue, rerouted power from a 1 to 2 to from the fan power, to the card, and then to the fan again, and it worked.
