Re: building new comp for wow and having an issue

Did you apply pressure from the card down to the slot or on the monitor cable to the port. I have a Radeon 6870 that if I use a VGA adapter (any adapter, I have tons of them, some still in bags) it will either not display anything or pressure on the port will actually get it to display something but will be missing a color or two. If I use DVI it works just fine.

Beyond that tidbit, I'd suggest what Kris suggested. Is it possible the standoffs used for the motherboard were too short? If they were short it would mean once an add-in card were "fully seated" to the retention bracket it wouldn't yet be all the way in the slot. I'd also suspect this will show up on the I/O panel with ports not lining up there too.
