Ok, I have the:

Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And Graphics Card- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SO here is my problem. I turn on my new Build and all the lights are green, and all the fans spin, but the display does not receive a signal. This is my first build ever, and the motherboard does not have integrated graphics, so I cannot even use the display for anything, or really do anything. I do have Bios Flashback, BUt i do not know how to use that. Apparently all you have to do it insert a usb with the bios and it does a headless update. Would this help? I can provide more information if necessary.

Yes, the power is plugged in, and the fans spin on the card. The Psu is CORSAIR CX600M 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Make sure the GPU is seated all the way in the motherboard as well as the 8 pin and 24pin power connectors to the motherboard. Try to boot up with just the power connectors to the mobo & GPU, a single stick of memory and only the power switch header connector. If you get signal then start plugging in everything else one thing at a time.

Edit: Since it is a modular psu check the connections at the psu as well and make sure the dvi/vga or hdmi cable is tight at the monitor and back of the computer as well. Try testing the cable if possible to rule out a bad dvi/vga or hdmi cable.
