Can't get anything to display on Rift?

I just bought my Oculus Rift and set it up as per the instructions in the Oculus Rift app. I have also set it to allow Unknown Sources in my General settings so that the SteamVR can run in it. However, whenever I attempt to run the Steam game, We Were Here, the game is instead cast on my monitor rather than my Oculus Rift headset.

I have two GTX Titans, not set to SLI so that I can make use of the single HDMI ports on each card for my monitor (on first GPU) and Oculus Rift (on second GPU).

How do I make it cast to the headset instead?

[Note: I've never before used an Oculus Rift, or any VR for that matter, so I admittedly have no idea what I'm doing.]

[Update: I have tried multiple SteamVR apps, including its tutorial, and they all launch on the monitor rather than the Oculus Rift.]

    Afaik that happens when you use the rift on another gpu than your main monitor.
    Try to use both on the same graphics card

    I'm in the unfortunate position where I cannot do that without some kind of DVI-HDMI adapter, but I guess that's my only option here.
