    If you hear the post, and the drives spinning up you may have a bad video card.

    Actually from your specs it looks like you have a non-existant video card..

    try your cpu in another working pc, maybe (or probably) it broke (probably burned) together with your motherboard.

    btw if the videocard/memory is bad you'll hear beep codes.

    hey rejunker first of all which video card you have again.you wrote geforce 9800 ultra(well....you just wrote the combination of two different companies leading line up)either the geforce 6800 ultra(real expensive and power hungry but top of the line)or an ati radeon 9800 pro/non-pro(probably the most infamous card for gamers)if its the first one.then look no further because it draws a heck of a lot of power it has molex connector on it(the video card)check to see first if they are connected to a connector.you'll need atleast a 500w psu to handle the videocard,does yours match up?
