I just purchased these items
a new case (Antec p180)
new MOBO (Foxconn NF4UK8AA)
new CPU (AMD Opteron 170 Denmark 2.0GHz)
new PSU (Antec TruePower Trio 550W)
new SATA HDD (160GB)
new RAM (WINTEC AMPO 1GB 184 pin DDR)

only thing i am using from my old pc is a PCI VGA card, i know it works because i have tested on old pc.

After installing everything I plug the PSU up and throw on the I/O switch to I. at that point the LAN light turns on and quickly turns off. when i press My power switch nothing happens. also my keyboard lights turn on and fade out continuously until i unplug the PSU or switch it to O. When i plugged my WACOM PC tablet the same thing happened with the power led on that...on then fades away. PLEASE HELP!

It sounds like you have a dead power supply, or possibly a bad motherboard, Foxconn not being all that high on the quality scale. What are you connecting the WACOM tablet to that causes the issue? The same outlet? If that's the case, try connecting the computer to a different outlet in the house.
