Mikey:

do a bench build on your system in incremental steps :

remove mobo from case and place it on a flat non-metallic surface / a mobo box works great because it will allow you to hang the mobo edge off the box just a tad so the vid card riser can be installed

install video card
one stick of ram (check your mobo manual for the correct slot to use for single stick config)
remove psu from case and run it from the table top too
connect BOTH psu leads to mobo 20pin and 4pin 12volt / make sure you hear the connectors snap when installed (check the mobo connectors for burnt pins or brown discolered slots / all slots even pci
connect the case switch to you mobo pins for case on & off power
visually inspect cpu ?? is it seated correctly ? did you use thermal pad or thermal paste ?? is the heat sink secure / is the cpu fan connected to mobo ??? wont run without cpu fan connected
then power up the system / see if it will get thru bios without a crash ?????
if it does ??? add hard drive, just place hard drive on table on top of a magazine, connect cables and let er rip / ohhh how my wife hates them computer guts all over table !! hehhehehehe

see what happens with these tests / post back

regards

joe
