Default Bought a new rig I made.. Does not post. ****ed.

So I bought a whole rig I made at my local frys.

Biostar TA880GB+ T Series Motherboard.
DDR3 Kingston 1333ghz HyperX 4GB(2x2gb)
AMD Athlon II x3 triple core 3.1ghz processor
500GB Seagate HDD
430 Watt stock psu

Now, I put everything together, so happy, press the button, everything turns on, nothing comes on screen. I get mad, instantly think its the processor, tear it out (Stupidly) Bend it, and spend hours putting them back.(I will take this back tomorow and get a new one)

All lights turn on, green light on case, fans turn on, but im wondering, is it really the CPU or is it the mobo? I hear no beeps which made me think it was the CPU.

Or could it have been the VGA output on the mobo which was bad?

Can anyone give me some input on what could have went wrong, and what I should replace?

Btw: Got the build for 270, with my own HDD from home.

Sounds like you PSU isn't giving enough power. Stock PSU's are very cheaply made. Sure you have all the plugs in? 24-pin, 4/8 pin, 6-pin (if GFX)
