R9 390 upgrade issues with Aurora R3

I'm upgrading my PC from an HD6950 to an r9 390. The problem I'm facing isn't with powering the card but with my computer booting after installing it. When I power the computer on, I don't hear a post beep (which is a hardware check, yes?) nor does it even get to boot up, it's just a black screen.

Now, my card might be DoA but what I think is the cause is my motherboard not recognizing the newer card. I'm not sure if I can flash a newer BIOS because I can't find one over A06 (what I'm running)

Can anyone offer an suggestions? I'm at a loss and really don't want to just have this card sitting in a box. Thanks for you time, all.
