You didn't answer this question - are there any beeps at startup? If everything is working correctly, there should be one single beep. If there are multiple beeps, the beeping is a code indicating that there's a problem. If there are no beeps, that also means there's a problem...or it could mean the internal speaker isn't connected. Here's the beep code chart:
You could have done better on the power supply but at least it's not a complete piece-o-crap. I suggest you temporarily remove the graphics card & connect the monitor cable to the onboard graphics port.
EDIT: I just had a look at the case. If it's the right one, I like that the power supply is mounted at the top, but there's no 5.25" bay(s) for an optical drive?
