This is my first time building a PC and it is turning into a nightmare.

Trying to test my components I plugged in my CPU, GPU and RAM. Power supply is connected and when I turn the power on the fan on the CPU and the fans on the GPU all spin.

However, that is all that happens. I get no post beep and nothing on the monitor. If I pull out the RAM and boot, I do get beeps.

I have no idea what to do now and what could be wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here are the components:

Asus M%A78L-M USB3 Motherboard
2 8GB Kingston RAM
Gigabyte Geoforce GTX 760
CPU - AMD FX-6300
PSU - Corsair CX600M

Well...

I had a similar case when I was prepping an old computer I had for someone and they brought in a video card (I gutted the computer's). It wouldn't boot. No beeps, nothing. Took out the video card, gave me the video card failure beep. Took out the RAM, it beeped at me.

Found out the BIOS I put in there didn't like newer cards. I had to rollback to a version that did like it.

That's the only thing I have to suggest, but considering this is a fresh build, you can't update BIOS until you can actually get into it... so if you have any old video cards lying around, see if the computer boots up on that.
