Do any fans spin? are the drives starting up? If they are try another video card.
Are there any beeps?
Are you sure the monitor is good.

Here is what you should do to try and eliminate as much as possible before purchasing a video card or psu.
Remove everthing but cpu, hsf,ram.
Remove mobo from case and place on a piece of cardboard
Install only cpu with hsf
1 stick of ram in the correct dimm
Psu making sure the 20 and 4 pin connector are attached
Case speaker making sure the + and - are correct
Mouse, keyboard, monitor
Verify all jumpers on the mobo are correct
Verify the cpu fan is on the correct header on the mobo
Clear the cmos by switching jumper from pins 1&2 to pins 2&3 and waiting 5 minutes, then make sure to replace jumper to pins 1&2
Now power on, what you want to do here is get a post and be able to get into bios.
If you can it could have been a case short or one of the removed components or as simple as a jumper setting or connection not good.
If you can not you would have to try the video card in another computer to test. There are ways to test the psu but we can try that if the above fails so post back your results.

hsf is heat sink fan it cools the processor (cpu)
psu is power supply unit
Let me know if you have any other questions

I am thinking that if you upgraded maybe it ain't powerfull enough for the new system.

A/c~lp 115/230V~ 8/4a 60/50hz
Dc 3.3V 5V 12V "-12" V "-5"V 15VSB
Op 28a 35a 16a 0.8a 0.3a 2a
+5v & 3.3v combine load 200w
+5v & 3.3v +12v combine load 330w
Most output is 350w
so read on there i dont kno where it is and if u have aim please post my aim is il2od

If it does not have a 4 pin 12v connection fron the psu to the mobo then it is no good, this is in addition to the 20 pin.
What we know,
It should not be the mobo or cpu because you have tried different ones.
You tried the video card in another computer and it works
You are getting no beeps with a case speaker hooked up to the system so I am assuming this is not the ram.
This only leaves the psu.
If you try all my suggestions and it still don't work purchase a new psu, I recommend Antec 430w true series. Stay away from cheap generic psu's

Yes it is possible to get a 450w or 500 w and probly better just stay away from generics
Antec 480w true is good and 500w Ulta Xconnect is also good I use both of these.
