New Build. Need Advice.

I'm building a new PC and I've gotten everything together and turned it on and the monitor is not receiving a signal. I do not have a speaker, so there aren't any beeps. Everything is getting power and on.

Here are my specs:
ASUS Radeon HD 6870 - vid card
AMD Phenom II 1100T - cpu
16GBs Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 - ram
Hitachi 500GB SATA 3.0Gb/s RPM: 7200 - harddrive

Any ideas?
