Default first time and need help!

I am going to attempt to build a computer and i have one question. I will be putting in this computer a Radeon xfx HD-6770 video card is this card plug and play or will i need to install drivers on the hard drive before I am able to use it? I will be installing windows 7 professional. Any help will be great.

Plug and play technology is a matter of pre-installed and/or pre-configured drivers. For graphics card you should almost always expect to install drivers. Driver updates are a thing to look forward to, so this is a good thing!

You will have visual output on the monitor before installing driver, if this is what you're worried about.
