You have literally given us nothing to go on here. We would need to know what make and model the GPU is, and the same for the motherboard. Saying they are blue and green is not remotely useful.

------------------------------------


FYI the Optiplex 380 is not a CPU, it's the computer model.

The 380 came in three case sizes, Mini Tower, Desktop or Small Form Factor (SFF).
Which one do you have?
What are the PSU specs?

What graphics card did you buy? If it requires any supplementary power from the PSU, it isn't going to work because your PSU doesn't have any pcie connections. Even if it's something like a 750ti that doesn't need external power, it probably won't work with only a 235W PSU, which yours is, especially if the power supplied to the pcie x16 is only 35w and not 70W.
