New build on Black Screen

I just got done building my first PC, however when I attempt to turn it on I get stuck at a black screen, nothing happens, the monitor doesn't even recognize that the computer is there. This is what I'm working with:
Asus Z97 Deluxe Motherboard
Intel Devil's Canyon i7 CPU
I'm just gunna hit paste for the GPU XFX Radeon R9 290 R9-290A-EDFD 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Double Dissipation Edition
1000w power supply
Windows 10 (not installed just sitting in disk tray)
Seagate Barracuda 3TB 64MB cache hard drive
Corsair H60 hydro cooling (it's a CPU cooler and a fan)
Rosewill Challenger Case
I have an SSD
4K supported ASUS 28in Monitor
2 8GB Ares Series G-Skill RAM

I read all of my manuals, watched online guides, and did a TON of research before putting this build together and ordering it, everything appears to be installed properly, however the LED DRAM_LED MemOK is solid red and I can't figure out why. I don't see any other issues the inside of the computer, but I can take photos if necessary.

Thank you for looking at this for me! I'm kind of freaking out.

It's alive

I got my new case in and just went ahead and assembled the entire thing, discovering that my GPU issue was a cord-connection problem. Everything is running smoothly so far, I haven't had any kind of problems, not even on first boot. Thank you for all of your help! If anything else comes up I'll be sure to come back to this post and ask.

Out of Range

Okay so everything is almost perfect. I say perfect because while I have my GPU connected and working, when I attempt to run a game or anything similar, I get a black screen and an "Out of Range" message.

4K pains.

Most 4K displays are really UHD and only 30Hz.

Try setting the video mode to 1080p and 60Hz in Windows and the game.
