Unhappy Monitor Can't Find Signal, Solution?

Original System specs:
8800GT 512mb
450 Watt PSU
E6850 3.0ghz Dual Core
2gb ram
___________________________
I installed a new PSU 700 Watt Silverstone
GTX 260 216 core overclocked edition
and 4 more gb of ram
______________________________________________
Problem: Everytime I boot everything is powered: all fans even gpu
blue led lights
mobo
But the monitor can't find a signal for some reason, theres no beep errors from POST, took out ram not problem, PSU installed correctly, I can't find any reason why it shouldn't work.

Solution:

Try adding the newly installed components one by one to find the source.

The easiest and most obvious place to start would be the GPU, put your old 8800GT back in and see if it'll boot.

Try booting with old PSU.

Then put your old sticks of RAM back in.

Here's another thing to try before yanking that board out. Try reseating the CPU. You may aslo want to try running one stick of memory to see if it will post.

Even though he's banned, he could still see this as a non-member.

Try getting a few wire ties and tie up a few of those wires!
You could possibly be over heating the system like that!

You don't just let a bunch of wire's hang down, tie them up on top of the case!

That's not the problem NWW. The thing just wont post. He installed some new components, and the comp refused to post after that.

This is why you do your homework before you buy something.
Check the card mounting. If it's not sitting in the slot all the way accross then it is not making all the connections. Some cases are out of square and if the card is held down using a tool-less catch then it may not be completely in the slot. Also check ALL of the motherboard and cpu aux power connections.
