    HELP PLEASE installing Graphics card

    So I'm installing an Asus Geforce GTX 660 into my Gigabyte GA-H61M-DS2 motherboard. I'm also running a 600w modular corsair PSU and intel i5 3440k processor.
    Today I go my card and I fastened it into my motherboard. I them plug the HDMI cable into it and then into my computer, nothing shows up.
    I then remove the card completely, install the drivers from the CD it came with, plug it back in, nothing came up
    I then went into device manager and deleted my Intel(R) HD drivers, this made my resolution shitty(as expected)
    I but when I did this I didn't see that the Asus drivers were installed.
    I then rebooted, with no Asus or intel drivers. I went online downloaded latest drivers, latest drivers were to be installed through Nvida geforce experiance but it said I don't have any compatable nvidia drivers
    I'm now stuck and don't know what to do. This is my first time installing a graphics card into a computer
    I BEG THAT SOMEONE HELPS ME
    Also whenever I turn on my computer with my graphics card plugged in I get a black screen

    Try updating your BIOS and perhaps see if windows is up to date. It should just work straight out the box (Unless you got it second hand). Also, re-install your Intel HD Drivers, you don't need to remove them.

    Check the cables and make sure they and the card are securely locked in place!

    Is there power going into the card at least? Any LEDs lighting up or something?

    Yeah, theres a green light lighting up. A friend sent me a method. If it doesn't work, I'm going back to square one.
    Be back with an update in about an hour

    A stupid mistake some people make is connecting the HDMI cable to their Motherboard, and therefore their integrated graphics.
    Make sure you're tapping into your GPU.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.
