New Gaming Rig Build Not Detecting GPU

I bought all this parts about a week ago, and me and my friend get everything booted and it launches just fine all the fans are working, and everything. We load up the BIOS and check everything, and the CPU is running a little warm 70c roughly in BIOS. So then today I booted it up and installed Windows 10 Pro OS on it. Everything was good for the most part. Then I was trying to find out why my resolution was 1024x768 so I go to change it only to see its greyed out. Then I go to check for the GPU in the device manger and find that its not even there, its named something different. What makes me even more confused is that the Display port on the left most side is the only one that works, and it doesn't allow you to use any of the others. So I was going to take out the GPU to check if everything was installed correctly, and find that the GPU is hot to the touch. Currently I'm distressed on the recliner. Please HELP!

Did you install the drivers? GPUs show up as "Basic Display Adapter" (or something like that) before drivers are installed.

Agreed, it sounds to me like your card is running but you're just missing the display drivers. Double check the PCI-E power cables, make sure they're fully seated.
