Unhappy Problem with a new build...

Amd Winnie 3200
Asus a8n-sli premium
Tagan TG480-U01 480W ATX2.0
x1800xt 256mb
2 x 1gb geil value pc3200
audiy2 zs

anyway have connected it all up - when i turn on power supply, motherboard light is on
when i turn pc on, CPU and GFX fans start spinning away
DVD-RW light flashes for a bit
but thats it - theres no beep or anything, and nothing on the minitor - monitor just stays in standby, i can feel the HD spinning
have tried putting in my other SATA HD which already has windows installed, but same thing - nothing appears on screen, and dont hear any beeps or HD spinning, just blank screen

have tried resetting cmos, using another cpu, not connecting the dvd-rw, only using 1 stick of ram, and still just get nothing, monitor stays in standby, and no beep or ANYTHING happens..

what can it be? any suggestions? what can it be?

also just wondering - the beeps you normally here when you POST, where do they come from? the motherboard? ie i dont need to plug any wires in for it?

The motherboard speaker probably looks like this.

Also, I know it probably doesn't help much, but whenever something like that happens to me, I take the machine apart and put it back together so I'll notice if something is missing or I forgot to connect something.
