Seems to boot, no video

Hi all. First of all, let me thank you for this forum, and for all your input in solving my problem. I really appreciate it.
Here is my system:

Kingston HyperX 2 x 1GB DDR3 1333
Scythe Big Shuriken SCBSK-1000
Intel Core i5-750
GIGABYTE GeForce 9600 GT 512MB Silent Cell
OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ600MXSP 600W

After complete assemble, it won't show anything on the monitor. It sounds like it is booting, I can hear hdd, odd, fans are spinning, but no video.
Power supply and video card have been tested on a different system, and work fine.
I think the mobo is at fault, but don't know how to test it. This is my first try of modular PSUs, and the use of high-end video card with additional PCI express power. I think I managed to connect everything up correctly, because on the other system I put this new PSU + video card it it, and it booted just fine.
What else do you need to know, that I missed?

Thanks again.

    Did you get a single short beep from the system speaker? If not, it didn't boot. Do you even have a system speaker? If not:

  2. Thanks for reply.
    Yes, I checked that troubleshooting post before writing here thanks to google.
    Rechecked everything, well except testing with one stick of memory, or changing slots. See, my system is taken apart already, was going to rma MB, but had doubts. Before building again, I was thinking to find some advice where to look for the problem. On Monday I will probably reassemble again, maybe with the help of "breadboarding" and see what it will tell me.
  3. ok. now it doesn't even start. power goes to mb, led is on, but it doesn't even start. not to mention the lack of any kind of beep.
  4. RMA'ed Asus board. It didn't beep, so I concluded it was DOA. Replaced with MSI. Now this one works fine. Though RMA experience is mostly not the best one.

    P.S. i5 rocks. :sol:
