First Build - Won't Boot / Blank Screen

So, start assembling everything going smoothly. Turn it on. All three fans going. Screen is blank. Tried everything. I've removed the mobo from the case and disconnected all the drives. Tried 1 RAM module. Tried the other RAM. Tried 2 different monitors, both plugged into the VGA port. I know the monitor works as I'm using it to type this right now. Tried the HDMI port. Watched a lot of the YouTube vids.

Ideas?

Are you plugging into the MOBO or the video card? You will only get video from the card because your CPU does not have integrated graphics.

Aha. So, I'm an idiot. I'll try again. I guess this means that the MOBO video outputs are meaningless?

That was it. I have access to the bios. Owe you a beer if you are ever in Chicago.
