Default Please help me get my EVGA 8800 GTX to work!

First, thanks in advance to anyone who reads this. I genuinely appreciate your time. I will be checking back often to give any more information that anyone requests about this problem.

Problem: Have yet to get any video output from a new computer that was assembled today. Don't hear any beeps from a POST test either...none at all, but:

Situation: All the parts for my friend's new computer came in the mail today from newegg and we put everything together following motherboard instructions.
I get power to all case fans, LEDs and
I can hear the HD in motion upon boot, and
can feel air from the graphics card fan(connected with a DVI-to-SVGA adapter) (and it's got two of the 6 pin PCI-E connectors running to it from the power supply)...

EVGA 122-CK-NF68 board
2 gigs corsair xms DDR2-800 (pc6400) ram
150 gig Western Digital Hard Drive (SATAII 3gb/s)
EVGA Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX 768mb PCI-Express graphics card
Intel Conroe e6600 Core 2 Duo chip 2.4 ghz
Stock heat sink
XCLIO a380 case
Thermaltake Toughpower 700watt Powersupply

Anyway, I have no clue where the problem is, and I would like help in narrowing down the possible component(s) that could be faulty.

unplug everything, keyboard, mouse, Hard drives, memory and try to post and let us know what happens. if it goes through the post, put 1 item back at a time and see which stops the computer from posting.
