Default Video Card Issues

Hello all. I am having a problem with my Radeon HD 4850. I just built a new computer and it uses the following parts:

MSI DKA790GX Mobo w/integrated radeon HD3300 gpu
MSI ATI Radeon HD 4850 PCI E card
AMD 2.4 gHz triple core
4GB OCZ ddr2 1066 RAM

I am using my old Antech 500W PSU and my old Computer case for budget purposes. Anyway, I installed everything and went into my BIOS and selected PCI E as my main graphics adapter. I then uninstalled the 3300 driver and installed the 4800 series driver for my GPU. CCC only recognizes the 3300 as well as the device manager. Ive scoured the BIOS and cant see anything else I would have to enable or disable to get the 4850 to work. I also am very unfamiliar with Windows Vista 32. Any help is greatly appreciated. I would love my system to be running as I intended so I can MS Flight Sim X it up with a sweeter gpu. Thanks in advance!!
