Over the past two days I've been building my first gaming rig with my brother. We assembled all the parts (mostly) smoothly. We hooked up the GPUs (SLI) to the monitor. We turned on and plugged in the powers supply and the GPUs and motherboard lit green, but when we pressed the power button on the case it didn't respond. Does anyone have any suggestions? Any answers are appreciated!

A few specs of your system would help. Try breadboarding the system outside the case with just CPU/cooler, 1 stick RAM in 1st slot, PSU, monitor connected to on-board video if available... one card in 1st slot if not. (be sure to plug in power to the card) Try booting to BIOS. Be sure the MB is on an insulated surface like the box it came in. You can start it by momentarily shorting the 2 pins the pwr sw would connect to.
I got it to turn on without a monitor now. Thanks for the advice!
