Default Nvidia GPU Driver Error

I have a GTX 660, I downloaded the latest driver from Nvidia and I get this error:

"NVIDIA installer cannot continue. This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware."

I know a lot of people have had this problem but the only solution I could find was something to do with doing to Device Manager and clicking on the video card, but mine doesn't even show up :/

I know its installed right, It's in the motherboard strait with fans spinning, and I changed the settings in the BIOS so that it would boot from PCIE instead of using the onboard graphics.

Any thoughts? Thank you!

Default Re: Nvidia GPU Driver Error

minimum power supply for that card is 450 watts, and have you plugged in your 6 pin connector from the power supply to the GPU?
