I have now tried 2 differen't Motherboards 2 differen't AGP cards, 3 hard drives, 2 Powersupplies, and 2 CPU's, I am completely lost here why it still doesn't work!! Anyone out there that can help me?

electric shorting?

Any chance that your mobo may be shorting-out in the new case? You may be able to hook everything up by placing the mobo on a piece of cardboard outside the case and then powering up to see what happens.
Sometimes a shorted signal path won't cause the p.s. to overload enough to kick the overload protection.

You will just need MB, CPU-heatsink/fan, one stick of memory, video card-monitor and keyboard. See if will post
then slowly add other parts. John

Would it still short in an aluminum case? Though it was only steel that did that?

Aluminum is a bettrer electrical conductor than steel. About any metal is a conductor.
