Hey guys!

Just put together this build:
Mobo: Gigabyte EP45-UD3R
CPU: Intel Q6600
GSU: GeForce 9800 GTS
Case: Antec 900
RAM: 4GB G.SKILL DDR2 1066
Cpu fan: Zalman 9500A
Harddrive: WD 640GB 7200 rpm
DVD: Samsung DVD+R

After puzzling all the pieces and components together, I booted for the first time today and it seemed as all was working well at first. Since all fans (CPU fan, PSU fan, Video Card fan, Case fan) were working fine, and all the Phase leds on the motherboard lit up, but the monitor was blank and I didn't hear any POST beep.

Since my monitor uses a VGA cable, I had to use a VGA to DVI adapter to connect the monitor to the Video Card, could that have affected the result?

I'm gonna try inserting my old, old, old Geforce card and see if I get a better result, but If you guys have any other ideas of troubleshooting, please do share.

Thanks in advance!
