I got everything hooked up and from what I can tell the cpu, motherboard, and memory work. But when I hook up the video card, the fans are running but it is not giving an image on the screen. But when I plug the hdmi cable into the motherboard instead of the video card it displays a image. Is this normal or no?

Have you connected all the PCI-e power connectors and is your PSU good enough?

Yes, it had two PCI-e power connectors, I plugged both in. The PSU is 850 watt power supply.

I tried it and it didn't for video card or the motherboard

My limit has been reached, but I am not getting a image from the motherboard anymore now.

I cant find primary display in the bios

@HelpWithPC:

go into the BIOS and change the primary display to PEG. You may need to do this without the card inserted first.
