Default Custom computer won't post

My wife bought the parts to build a computer for my birthday.

She bought:

2.6 GHz P4 800 FSB
FIC P4-865PE Max Motherboard
ATI All-In-Wonder 8x AGP graphics card
256 MB DDR Ram
80 GB harddrive
4 format DVD writer

I installed everything, and the computer won't post or display anything on monitor. I uninstalled the harddrive and DVD writer, and computer still nothing. I have checked all connections, and all seem to be fine.

Motherboard does not have built in video, and monitor works fine on my other computer.

Could the problem be that the motherboard isn't recognizing the graphics card? Is there a jumper someplace that I've missed to change to 800 FSB for the CPU? Or is it something else that I'm missing?
