Well does the system post or anything? I mean it sounds like you have switched out many different parts that could have caused a problem somewhere.

So now it doesnt boot at all. I would strip it down to the bare minimums. 1 stick of RAM HDD and if needed GPU. Then see if it posts. If so then something else is up. Maybe one of your RAM sticks is bad or one of your RAM slots. But try it with bare minimum components first.
