Default New build not booting up

Hi,

I just recently finished putting together my new computer. When I first tried booting it up, it would turn on for about 3 seconds, then turn off for about 3 seconds, again and again until I shut it off.

Took everything out of the case, set the motherboard on a cardboard sheet and began turning it on adding one thing at a time. When I did this, everything would run, but I would not get anything on the screen. (no input to the screen, not just a black screen) I am out of ideas and thinking that it has something to do with either the motherboard or the graphics card. I would love to test it without a graphics card but the mobo doesnt have an onboard one. Everything is listed below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P
CPU: Intel Core i7 920
Memory: Coirsair DDR3 6GB Kit (3x2GB)
PSU: Antec 550W
Graphics Card: GeForce 9600GT
Hard Drive: Maxtor 200GB

Both power supplies for the mobo are plugged in and double checked. When I assembled it in the case, i got a large burst of beeps which I associate with memory being in incorrectly. Pulled all the memory but one and all beeping went away.

Edit:
graphics card was plugged into the psu also.

Have you tried the vid card in the other pci-e 16x slot?

try booting up with just the one RAM stick, after you get your OS installed (if you can) then put the rest of the RAM back in.
