No video on newly built PC

Specs: Windows Vista, AMD X4 965/ASUS M4A88T-V EVO USB 3.0
Just put together a new AMD computer for my roommate. Here are the specs:

AMD X4 965
4 GB (2x2GB) G-SKILL DDR3 1333
Geforce 9800 GTX
Existing Seagate Barracuda with Windows Vista

After putting it all together we turned on the power and everything came on except the monitor. I tried plugging it in the VGA on-board video and nothing. I'm not even sure the thing is POSTing. I have the motherboard speaker plugged in but it isn't giving any error beeps. I tried taking out the video card to see if there was a conflict but no video still.

Any suggestions? I'm sure everything is plugged in correctly. Could it possibly be a DOA motherboard?

I'm guessing you didn't benchtest the hardware before putting it in the case? Read this:
