this is a stupid question but im going to ask it. did you plug both PCI-E power plugs into the card most newer cards take 2 plugs instead of 1.

Did you delete/uninstall all the old Nvidia drivers and download/install the Catalyst suite and the proper AMD drivers for the 290?

Also did you put the new card in the first PCI slot on the MOBO - just in case as you were using 2 GPU's before.
