To start with, that PSU isn't even minimum spec for the system. On top of that it's 15 years old. IIRC Nvidia and AMD quit offering drivers for 32 bit systems a while back and recently, respectively.
Chances are that even if you got it to show video it would be on some manner of legacy driver. I would not expect it being worthwhile. Be patient.

I would suggest if you have a friend with a system that is capable to plug in long enough to ensure is working before return period expires. One issue with 'buy as you go' system build rather than the 'save your money up' method.
