My first thought is something might be shorting out. Double check that your motherboard is on stand-offs and absolutely nothing is touching the case. If this looks good, remove everything(drives, sound if it's not onboard, use one stick of RAM if you can, etc) and see if you can get a post screen. If you do, slowly rebuild it.

Oh, and is that flashing light constant? I had a computer with a bad powresupply once, and the light just flashed every so often.

well every so often even a reputable company like Antec would have a psu that is faulty, even if they usually make really good one (and belive me, they do).
