using old account on steam?

Hi, if I buy eso on steam, will I be able to use my old account and still get cards?

also will I be able to use my current installation or would I have to reinstall?

    The retail/ESO site purchased copies of ESO are separate from the Steam game. If you buy it on Steam you can't link your previously purchased account to the Steam purchase, so no its not possible to make your current ESO account merge with the Steam ESO. If you buy ESO on Steam you're buying an all new copy of ESO and will need to pay a separate subscription fee for a second ESO account.
