Only reason why I doubt memory is b/c you said you have three sticks, and none of them work. So I assume you tried them all one by one. The chances of all of them going bad at the same time seems unlikely.

I would disconnect as much as possible. IE video card, cd drives, all but one stick of ram, any pci cards you have, and what not. Then try and boot and see if you get a beep code. If not start connecting them one by one and inbetween do a boot. Once you start getting the beep code you have your faulty hardware.

Karma/rep is always appreciated

Sounds like the video card isn't seated correctly.
