Im new and I am building my first gaming pc.

It's a Antec Sonata lll 500 case, Ati Radeon HD 4870, Intel core 2 duo e8400, 4gb Gskill ram, Gigabyte Ep45-Ud3r motherboard.

Now I've put everything together but when I press the power button I only see a blue led on the front case and I hear absolutely nothing. No power supply fan, nothing.. It's like its not even on...But I am getting a blue LED on the front?

This should mean that the motherboard is getting power, right?? Why is this happening?

Please help, I really want to get this to work. So please it is highly apreciated!
