Cool First Power-Up

I just got my case and asus sli delux mobo with a 7800GTX but my cpu was back ordered. Is it safe to power up that stuff with like no moniter attached or hd's or anything just to see if the led's of the mobo power up and the case lights work? I' really cerious but want to be safe.

Yeha, you can install everything but without the hd or anything, it won't do anything! lol... it'll turn on, the lights will beep, and that's it. THen just hold the power on button for like 5 secs and it'll turn off.
