Parts list:

Processor: i7-920 quad core
PS: OCZ 600W
Video Card: Diamond Radeon HD 5770
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922

Any and all ideas and help are much appreciated.

EDIT: Im using the hard drive from my previous computer. would this cause any issues?
do you see the bios boot screen?
do you have every thing connected including the 6-pin PCI Express power connector?
have you reconnected and reseated everything?
if none of these work
then troubleshoot and remove anything except necessary and test all the components as one or more might be bad...
i dont see anything at all. monitor is completely unresponsive on this comp, monitor works fine on my other comp.

Everything is connected and reconnected 4 times.
I've rarely come across this in decades of building pc's!

The socket where you plug in the graphics lead - check the socket and that there are no splinters of metal anywhere earthing to the graphic lead plug.
Sometimes the casting is left really rough and needs cleaning up!

Does puta boot up with another card to bios screen?

Is the green memory light on, on the motherboard?

Is there a red light on next to your graphic card if your m/board has this function?

Do the fans start on your graphic card?

Test your graphic lead and make sure it works!
Check any default pins are shorted properly on motherboard for initial CPU setting.
Some graphic cards have pal/ntsc pins too.
