Asus Z87 Deluxe/quad q-code AE, Blank screen, no bios options

I built my first computer last night and was seriously disappointed when i turned it on and got nothing on the screen. No bios options and a Q-code of AE (Legacy Boot Event). I have tried un-hooking one of the memory cards, un hooking the GPU, and trying the monitor on the gpu and on the mother board. I don't know what else to do and im startting to get worried that i just flushed $2500 down the drain. I used this sight for a lot of my research viewing others problems and answers and reading advice about components. Hopefully some can help me. My build is below.

Mother Board: Z87 Deluxe Quad
Memory: Corsair vengance 1866
CPU: i7 4770K
SSD: Samsunge evo 750Gb
HDD: WD grenn 4TB
GPU: Asus HD7770
CPU cooler: Corsair H80i
Power supply: Corsair CX750
Case Coolermaster Haf-X Full

    Sorry for the late response here. I really do appreciate the help. I uninstalled and reinstalled the memory. I also changed which sata ports I plugged the HDD's and SSD into and I was able to get a picture. After installing windows 8.1 everything works great now.
