I know a lot of have people have asked this question before, however I have not read a clear answer so far. If anyone could help me It would be appreciated.
( I also can't connect to the internet on this PC, but can on others. This is built by myself and is my first build, it all went well until this.)

My specs are:
Intel 4670k
Gigabyte gtx oc 770
Asus z87-k
Seagate 2tb
16gb vengeance ram
550watt semi modular cross air psu.

I probably should of mentioned that I have got the disk and have tried to download the drivers multiple times, but unfortunately on e downloaded it still does nothing.
 
The drivers from the website are distributed as .zip files; you need to unzip them and run the setup.exe file in the folder that comes out.

What exactly happens when you try to run the drivers off the disk or from the website?
 
Go to the device manager this way: right-click Computer, click Properties, in the System Properties window the link to Device Manager will appear on the left-hand pane.

If there are devices uninstalled, most will appear under "Other Devices." If you see your specific network device under "Network Adapters" you're ok. Check also "Display Adapters." You should see the Nvidia 770 listed that way. Under Sound you should see your Realtek listed. IF generic windows drivers ("Standard VGA adapter" or "HD Audio Device" with no specific device naming) you need to install those too.

Under display adapters it says standard VGA graphics adapter, does this mean I've not plugged in my graphics card correctly? Under network adapters is Realtek pcie gbe family control, and yes PCI simple communications controller is under other devices.
 
The display adapter doesn't come from the mobo, since it's a card. That's a separate disk or a trip to geforce.com/drivers (if it weren't plugged properly you'd probably get no display at all). Your network driver appears to be fine. The PCI simple communications controller is most likely Intel Management Engine interface: look for that in the website and install it.
 
Well this Intel Management driver has nothing to do with the network. Your network driver is installed already (Realtek pcie gbe family controller under Network adapters as you mentioned). If your Ethernet cable is plugged in you should be online
