I have searched and read the other threads and am wondering if this prob is my PSU, mobo, or both.

MB: Gigabyte ga-p5-ds3r
CPU: E4400
Video: EVGA 8600GT 256m
Memory: Kingston HyperX KHX6400D2LLK2
PSU: Corsair HX 520

First off the PSU is buzzing and the fan is spinning slow, when I tried to boot in case with just the RAM and VGA card my fans pulsed and I got nothing on screen. Tried again outside of case same black screen CPU fan spun once then nothing. I am thinking bad PSU, I know there are ram problems with this board but I bought ram off of the recommendation list on Gigabyte's website.

any help would be met with the thanks of 1000 trumpets,

You said the power supply buzzed, that is not normal regardless of the state of the motherboard, start with the PS. When you are troubleshooting, change only one thing at a time, and try the easiest first, even if it seems stupid, you will save a lot of headache.
