Recently I purchased a list of somewhat decent parts for my new rig.

However, to save a few bucks I decided to reuse a couple parts from my previous computer.
Nivida Geforce Gtx 560 TI
So it all arrived perfectly. I slammed it all together and it didn't work at all. Turned out the mobo was faulty. I sent it back to the supplier for a new one. (At my expense + a very, very long wait) The new mobo arrived. The supplier promised me this new mobo would work. So I tried testing the rig outside the case. And it worked! The bios booted up looking all shiny and pretty.
I carefully placed it back into the case, (Yes, I was wearing a anti-static strap) hooked it all up properly, Triple checked the entire thing, and booted it up. All the fans begun spinning and everything was seemingly getting power and running. But nothing on screen. No signal to the monitor whatsoever. I was able to turn the computer off by holding in the power button, so obviously SOME BRAIN inside the thing is functioning.
I tested almost every possibility. 1 stick of ram, no sticks of ram, leaving the battery out, leaving the computer alone, taking the mobo out to test on cardboard AGAIN... No effect. Nothing seems to work.
So after waiting an entire month for the supplier to take their thumb out of their asses, I get nothing. I'm very sure I have not shocked the mobo.
What am I doing wrong? What have I done to suddenly make it not like me?
I'm REALLY now not quite sure if this was the right board to post this in. Move this is possible. Thanks.
