So basically, I ordered all the parts and built a new computer. I'm using it to type this right now, but the problem is that it won't recognize my graphics card. I'm currently running off of my "Intel HD Graphics" (that's from the device manager).
The processor: Intel i5-3570
The graphics card: XFX AMD Radeon HD 7950
The motherboard: Asrock Z75 Pro3
Anyways, when I go to device manager, it shows two problems...
1: The "SM Bus Controller" driver is not found.
2: There's an "Unknown Device" in the device manager.
I did run a Windows Fix It and all it gave me was a list of errors, without fixing anything (I used the recommended settings).
Here's the link to the Fix It error list http://imageshack.us/a/img141/9379/driverproblems.png
I have run Windows update multiple times (no updates found ever since I installed a bazillion updates from the original boot), tried uninstalling both of the problem devices from device manager and then restarted, and when I insert my driver CD that came with the GPU it doesn't find any GPU installed.
Nothing is really working. Does anyone have any ideas?

Another note: The graphics card is plugged into the PCI 3.0 slot on the motherboard.
EDIT: I just took the side panel off and the graphics card fan is indeed running, for anyone who's curious.

There are driver links there.
You need to connect your monitor to the graphics card, not motherboard's display out ports.
Also, I've already been to http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.us.asp?cat=Download&os=Win764&Model=Z75 Pro3 and I can't seem to find anything suggesting it's the SM Bus Controller driver. If it's on there, can you tell me what it's called?
If you connected your monitor to the graphics card, then you shouldn't see Intel HD graphics anywhere, as Intel HD graphics are disabled when dedicated graphics card is installed.
Are you sure you connected it to the actual graphics card's display outputs, with none on motherboard's display outputs?
Are both PCI-E 6 pin plugs plugged firmly into the graphics card.
You should install all the system drivers EXCEPT CIR drivers, SATA RAID drivers, VGA drivers, Lucid Virtu drivers
It'll take a few minutes, but alright.. >.>
I did install the INF driver and it made the SM Bus Controller go away in the device manager, so I assume it downloaded, but I still have an Unknown Device there.

Changing to the DVI cable did nothing, and yes, I took out the HDMI too.
