Default graphics card displays no image

So i bought a r9 280x toxic for my system and have a 8 pin and 6 pin connected to it from the PSU which will power the fans and lights upon it but when i plug it into the monitor i get no signal. At the moment i'm using my inbuilt graphics and they work fine but i don't think the GPU even shows up in device manager

Did you check your BIOS settings to use a dedicated/PCI-E GPU instead of the integrated graphics?
