HElp New system all new parts wont turn on

Ok kinda new to building systems built one in the past and turned right on never had any problems, other then old and dated..

I just built a new one all new parts. I got case, PSU, Motherbaord, Ram, and CPU, in a combo deal all compatiable with each other..Picked up GFX card, and Hard drive, and figured good to go, Never use floppy so didnt even get one already had a DVD/RW/Rom Drive is what I use instead of floppy...would it not turn on if no floppy connected?

Well I got it all hooked up double and tripple checked all connections, went to turn it on and nothing happend..ohh ( and not sure why but motherboard doesn't seem to have any lights on it, or just haven't gotten it to light up). So I figured it had to be bad Motherboard sent it back and got a new one same board free replacment sent to me hooked it up ect ect, went to turn it on and nothing happend again. So figured it has to be PSU, maybe not enough wattage w/e. So bought a new good one OCZ ModXStream 600 watt PSU.. Just hooked it up( alot cleaner wiring is nice PSU) and again no Fans nothing happends. I'm litterally going crazy. Having this Decently nice PC next to me and can't even get it to turn on, been working on it for months now in ordering and reordering parts. SO I need help here is specs,
