Have you tried booting using the onboard, updating the bios and then installing the card? Just an idea.

The mainboard has been updated to the latest BIOS, but the mainboard still fails to recognise the card. Even put on the beta BIOS, but still no luck.
Tested the mainboard with a HD 5750 and that works fine. Even when booting it up with the on-board plugged in, Windows will start to install the drivers for the HD5750.

Someone recommended that I clear the CMOS and then connect the DVI to the VGA compatible port of the card only - but then that means I can't use the digital out on the card.

The other option is to wait for GigaByte to release a new BIOS that supports the R7870...

I can't believe that a 1155 chipset board wouldn't support a specific model of card. It all works over PCI-E 16x so... whaaa? Where did you hear that?

I came across a few forum posts talking about similar issues.

I put this PC rig together for a friend. He was continuing to troubleshoot the issue and found that by setting the PCI-E x 16 port to gen 2 settings in BIOS the card could be picked up by the mainboard.
So there you have it! A mainboard supporting PCI-E x 16 Gen 3 cannot recognise a Gen 3 compliant video card...

Well lets have a BIOS update soon GigaByte!

EDIT - If you set the gen settings back to gen 3, the card won't work - even when you set the mainboard back to gen 2. You have to re-install the operating system if you do this!
