First of all, welcome to HWC! I hope you will enjoy the place.
Now serious business.
Try to clear Cmos. Some board are sissy about hardware change.
After that if it still dosen't work, can you give us your complete system config?

He's using an xfx 780i.
Heh... thanks.... I knew he had it listed up there somewhere, but I didn't see it in the text of the message.... :)

Have you tried the different slots? What power supply are you using?

edit: This is going to sound strange, but are you absolutely certain the card is seating properly? Reason I ask is that I've got an XFX 280GTX that absolutely will not seat properly on one of my external cases, while all other cards work fine. I ended up having to fold the card mounting lip back. Check the backplate to see if there is any room to loosen it up and move it up a bit.

As mentioned earlier the first thing would be to make sure that the card works by trying it in a different pc, ie. your friends. Is that what you meant when you said
the same card is working fine on my friend's mobo though.
