Hello,

Today I was excited to finally pick up a GTX 2070 to upgrade from my GTX 970. However when I swapped out the GPU's (With everything up to date) during the post screen, beeps start (And go ever 30 secs or so) monitor then goes black a few seconds after the first beep and loses signal. I can swap a my 970 back in without a problem.

I do have the full 875w Power Supply, as well tried different power cable configs with both the 6 and 8 pins.

I checked the Ports and the Specs for the PCIe are 2.0 so they should be compatible with the GTX 2070. I tried to reinstall the Graphics drivers but no luck.

Anyone have any advice?
