maybe you have a bad video card? maybe take it to a computer shop and have them test it, or put it in another computer that you know works and test it there.
the monitor does power on though if I understand you? just a blank screen?

I really don't know what to tell you, I agree with tommy, take it to a comp shop or something. Also about that psu, 400W is MORE than enough for the components you put in. You could of used a 350W and still had plenty of spare watts.

Sorry, I dunno what else to tell you. I think if worse comes to worse you just rebuild the computer entirely.

do you have another computer around somewhere with another vid card in it? you could take that out and try it in your pc that you just built, a videocard that you know works just to try and troubleshoot. and also to make sure that everything else is working right
