Seems pretty straight forward. Plug n play? Right? Maybe faulty card...not sure gonna try installing drivers first then put 970 back in

Yes, was told by pny that it's a voltage thing. I don't know. If I can't get it working just going to scavenge CPU and do a new build

Said alienware doesn't have enough volts. Do you know if drivers go into gpu or hard drive?
