GA-X58A-UD5 Video Problems

Long time listener, first time caller.

After the weeks of busy christmas period, I got round to building the following today;

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 580
Intel Core i7-950
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5
Corsair CMT6GX3M3A2000C8 Dominator GT 6GB
OCZ 60GB Agility 2E SSD 2.5" SATA-II

Plus case, bluray, PSU etc.

Only problem is that there is no video output from either of the DVI slots :sweat:
The computer doesn't reset and the LED error block on the mboard just says 88, which isn't even in the manual.

I tried connecting my old nvidia 6600 (which is running perfectly in my old computer) and got the same result.
I've also tried changing the 580 between PCI-E slots with the same effect.
So I'm assuming the graphics card is fine.

I've even used an antistatic wristband :kaola:

So here are my noobish questions;

Is there anything I can do to fix it?
Is it right to assume the mboard is faulty, or could the RAM be to blame?
Anyone else had a problem with this combo?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :whistle:

Edit: Forget to mention two points;

* I've tried starting with one stick of ram, but no effect. I tried it in each of the slots.
* I've put in the mboard speaker but no errors come up!

Is there a way to check whether the board or processor is to blame?

    I just built a system with the same MB, cpu and video card. Worked great.
