1. Make sure it is inserting into a PCI EXPRESS 2.0 (3.0 on that motherboard) X16 slot. The long slot closest to your CPU.
2. Make sure both 6 PIN PSU cords are correctly installed on the GPU.
3. Like Poppy said, use the GPU's monitor connection.

Also, are you installing drivers from CD or from AMD's website?

Yep, the PCIe slot, had both power cords plugged in, even tried rerouting with the molex adapters, and I tried both the CD and website drivers.

I brought the GPU over to a buddies house last night and it worked on his system, so it's down to the motherboard or PSU. He let me borrow his few-year old PCIe GPU to try in my MB. If it works there, I'll bring my whole system over and try his giant PSU out.

If it does come to using his PSU, can i simply just plug his into my GPU and use my current one to power everything else?
