GTX 660TI Doesnt Work in XPS8900?

Removed GT 730 from a brand new XPS8900, inserted GTX 660TI and there is not output from the card. HDMI and DVI. HAve two cards both exhibit the same no video output. XPS 460 watt supply has the two extra 6 pin power plugs that are needed by the 660ti. System power on, fans run, but no video?

Any magic in the BIOS to get this card to display video output? 

Spent many hours on phone today with Dell to no avail..they couldnt even tell me if it was compatible or a valid solution?

Any Ideas, Help

thanks

The card Likely does not have UEFI secure boot certificate.  This means LEGACY option roms and CSM must be ON with Secure boot OFF.

This situation applies to windows 8 or 8.1 or 10 systems.
