Ok built new com and can not get the new video card to show up on vista 32bit. I have updated motherboard bio, and video card drivers. My question is if I switch out card to my older one and it works does that mean my new card is bad? Or if my old card does not work either, does that mean motherboard is bad? Right now I plugged both six pin power cable to card with same cable, will using different cable for each plug make a different? I know motherboard only has 2 2.0 pci exp slot and card is 3.0 will that make a different? Video card does work at least partially because brings pic up on monitor.

Try updating BIOS. I've had BIOS compatibility snags before with GPUs of differing generations and updating/rolling back (yes, I've had to do that) often worked.
