graphics card problem on new build

I have purchased a XFX 7950 DD to go with my new MSI 760GM-P21. I have a 750W psu to go with it too. 2GB RAM, AMD Triple Core Athlon II X3 450 3.2GHz Installed windows 7.

Bios has changed itself to PCI-Express for main graphics output. The only problem is, nothing else detects the card, the drivers wont install until they see the card and nothing comes up as needing a driver. I have plugged in both 6 pin connectors to the graphics card. So i am now left with a £230 graphcs card that doesnt work. Any suggestions?

My first suggestion would be to try the GPU in another PC which of course may be difficult. Or is it possible to try another GPU in the PC?

Where you using on-board graphics prior to your purchase of the 7950?
