New computer, not booting.

Hi everyone!

For a few weeks ago I bought a new computer, ordered different parts and put it together Happy But there seems to be an issue somewhere..
When I try to boot the computer everything seems fine but the monitor does not get any signal from the VGA card. The monitor notice that its connected to the card but there are no reaction on it what so ever. I have tried to check my wires but I seem to have done all in the right manner. I have tried to put the motherboard on its cardboard box and connect only RAM, vga/card and gpu and processor, but still nothing.

This is my spec:

Antec Two Hundred Midi Tower Sort
Vifter: 1x 140mm Top, 1x 120mm Back, ATX, mATX, mI

Akasa Amber 120mm Fan

Corsair CX 430W PSU

Kingston ValueR. DDR3 1333MHz 4GB, CL9

AMD Athlon II X2 250

As you see the speccs are not gr8. But I intend to use this PC as a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), and thats all.

I have tryed to figure out what the problem is but I cant seem to find it. I wondered if you smart people of this forum could help me out here!

Sadly yes..

There are no built in grafix unit on the motherboard, but I have tryed all the different outputs on the back of the grafix card..!

Nothing seems to help, waiting on an e-mail from the PSU provider atm.
