Clarification Request
Start over.

Do not fully assemble the PC. Start with the least number of parts and NO CASE. Work your way up to a full PC.

If you can't get a beep or display outside the case with bare min parts, you are looking at the bad or badly configured parts and have to decide which to RMA.

Did that

Now I'm guessing imma find some RAM that I know work and replace.. And the same with the GPU...?

Usually it's just one part.

But if you think the GPU is gone too, I can't disagree.
