Try another slot for your graphics card and see if it is a bad slot.

Try re-seating the processor and make sure there are no bent pins on the motherboard. Remember that the PCI-E controller is on your CPU. I think the very last 4x PCI-E slot might be off the Z77 chipset, but that might have been for the Z68, I can't remember.
