    The lack of video might be a symptom of something other than the video itself. Did you use motherboard standoffs? Did you connect the 8 pin 12V connector on the motherboard? Are both external PCI-E power connectors on the graphics card hooked up to the PSU?

    If the above items don't help, remove/disconnect all components from the motherboard except one RAM module, the CPU, CPU heatsink/fan, graphics card (and power connections) PSU, front panel ON switch and see if it will post. Of course, shut off the power to the PC while removing and inserting components.

    If you still have trouble, to eliminate the possibility of shorts try removing the motherboard from the case, place it on a soft, non-conducting surface and connect the above components and see if it will post.
