Help with a new system build - does not post

Specs: Windows 7, AMD Athalon II X3/ 4GB
Hi there,

Built a new system with the following:

ASRock 770 Extreme Motherboard
AMD Athalon II X3 445 Rana processor
Gigabyte GV-N220OC-1GI GeForce video card
64GB Crucial C300 SSD (boot drive)
1TB Western Digital WD1002FAEX HDD
4GB Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3 memory

It looks like everything is connected properly but I get no video feed so I can't tell if the system is working or not. The video card has power (the onboard fan spins) and the memory I have installed also has power, but I see nothing on the monitor. The monitor says "no signal". Don't know where to start on diagnosing the problem since I can't tell if the video card is failing or the system isn't posting.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Erik

Did you benchtest before installing everything in the case?
